Chin-Chia Hsu is a 3rd-year Ph.D. student in Institute for Data, Systems and Society (IDSS) at MIT, working with Prof. Ali Jadbabaie. He is also affiliated with LIDS (Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems). Prior to MIT, he obtained his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU).

His research focus is on using tools and techniques from game theory, optimization, microeconomics, and applied probability theory to study rational individual decision making in social networks and investigate how these micro-level actions can lead to system level phenomena (e.g., news cascades).
