I am a researcher in artificial intelligence, with an interest in the modelling and understanding of adaptive multi-agent systems.
My research focus is on multi-agent learning, especially reinforcement learning. I am interested in investigating how multiple learning agents interact and influence each other, what kind of global system dynamics arise, and how desired behaviour can be obtained by modifying the learning algorithms used. The settings I look at range from one-on-one interactions (e.g. games) to small groups (e.g. multi-agent coordination) and large communities (e.g. interactions in social networks).
Previously I held a position as a Researcher at the Intelligent and Autonomous Systems group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI, the national research institute for mathematics and computer science) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, UK. I did my PhD research at Maastricht University, where I graduated in May 2015.
