Mo Chen began the Smith PhD Program in Fall 2017. Her research focuses on how interdependence and uncertainty impact adaptation and coordination in a multi-agent and goal-oriented complex system. Methodologically, she applies formal and computational models and conducts large-sample statistical analysis using algorithmic learning and natural language processing. Phenomenally, her research can be grouped into two broad categories: corporate strategy and innovation and entrepreneurship.
