Portrait of Cathy Wu

Cathy Wu

Postdoctoral Researcher


I am interested in developing algorithms and systems to enable reliable decision-making in urban and societal systems. I am interested in many aspects of reinforcement learning — from applied to empirical to theoretical to control perspectives. I recently completed my PhD in EECS at UC Berkeley, where I was advised by Alexandre Bayen.

I will join the MIT faculty in Fall 2019, where I will be part of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the Institute for Data, Systems, & Society (IDSS), and the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems (LIDS).
