Biography

Dr. Michael Brydon's twin research interests in technology and applied decision making are a natural result of his graduate engineering degree and a PhD in Commerce. His research straddles the disciplinary boundaries of computer science, economics and decision theory and examines the potential uses of information technology to support decision-making in complex, uncertain environments. His research has involved a number of firms including Alcan, DuPont, Avcorp, and VanCity and has been funded by both the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

Specialization and Research Interests

Decision support, meta-choice, public choice, decision-theoretic planning, combinatorial auctions, heuristic search.
