Anshul Gupta

I studied for my PhD at the Department of Computer Science, of the University of Liverpool.
I have now completed my PhD and my PhD thesis is on Equilibria in Finite Games.

Together with my supervisor, Sven Schewe, we have worked on Nash, leader and other related equilibria in finite games like mean-payoff games, discounted-payoff games and bi-matrix games. We have studied construction of optimal strategy profiles in these games in many different ways and settings.

I am currently looking for a suitable post-doc or academic position.

Research Interests

game theory, equilibrium in games, finite games of infinite duration, mean-payoff games, discounted-payoff games, bimatrix games
