My mentorship with DMP brought me to Providence, Rhode Island, to work with Amy Greenwald, an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Brown University whose main research interests include e-commerce and multi-agent learning. For the past few months I've had the privilege of working with her and a fellow DMP intern, Nicole Dombeck, on a trading agent for the 2002 Trading Agent Competition. I think RoxyBot, as our agent is affectionately known, will end up having a larger impact on the course of my life than our ten-week rendezvous would seem to suggest. That is because prior to this summer, I was uncertain about whether or not I wanted to go to grad school after completing my senior year at Duke. But what better way to decide than to have a sneak preview of the life of a grad student for a summer?! It has been a great experience, and I have learned just enough about conducting research in computer science to make me want to sign up for a few more years!
