Professor Vidal's research interests are in the area of multiagent systems. On the theoretical side he is interested in developing systems that coordinate and aggregate the actions of large number of autonomous agents. This is interdisciplinary work which straddles the boundaries of economics, algorithmic game theory, distributed algorithms, agent-based modelling, and the social sciences. On the implementation side he is interested in the development of agent-based simulations, web applications and web services.


Dr. Vidal currently teaches our Senior Capstone Project class.
