Academic Biography

Dr The Anh Han is a Senior  Lecturer in the School of Computing and has been at Teesside since 2014. Before joining Teesside, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the AI Lab of the Free University of Brussels (VUB), funded by the Belgium national research foundation FWO, and obtained his PhD at the AI Center of the New University of Lisbon. Prior to that, he completed a joint Masters degree, funded with an Eramus Mundus scholarship, at the New University of Lisbon and the Technical University of Dresden.

His current research interests span a wide range of topics within Artificial Intelligence and Multidisciplinary research, including dynamics of human cooperation, AI cognitive modelling, evolution of cognition, evolutionary game theory, agent-based modelling, intention recognition, and knowledge representation and reasoning.

Recently, he also collaborated with behavioral economists to perform experiments with real human subjects in order to validate theoretical models related to human cooperative behaviour.

Within these topics, Dr Han's research has resulted in a book (published by Springer) and over 70 referred papers in high-ranking international scientific journals and top computer science conferences, including the journal of the Royal Society Interface, Nature Scientific Reports, Mathematical Biology, Artificial Life journal, Dynamic Games and Applications, Adaptive Behaviour, AI Communications, IJCAI, AAAI, AAMAS, GECCO, CEC, ICLP, and LPAR.

Summary of Research Interests

Artificial Intelligence:

  • AI cognitive modelling
  • agent-based modelling and multi-agent systems
  • intention recognition
  • knowledge representation and reasoning

Multi-disciplinary research:

  • dynamics of human cooperation
  • evolution of cognition
  • evolutionary game theory
  • behavioural economics and psychology

I am highly interested in PhD supervision, especially in the following topics:

  1. dynamics of human cooperation
  2. agent-based modelling and multi-agent systems
  3. cognitive modelling
  4. mathematical modelling in behavioural economics and psychology
  5. evolutionary game theory

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
