I am a research fellow in the Intelligence, Agents, Multimedia (IAM) group at the School of Electronics and Computer Science at University of Southampton. I am currently involved on the MBC project led by Professor Nick Jennings
My research interests concentrate on the following intricately connected aspects of Multiagent Systems:
- Distributed Control and planning in multi-agent and robotic systems
- Emergent properties and self-organizing system behaviour
- Mathematical modeling of interactions
My CV record includes:
- Teaching AI Course at Hebrew University in 2005
- Co-Organizer of "Decision-Making in Extended Multiagent Interactions" Tutorial, first presented at AAMAS-08.
- Programm committee of:
- AAMAS Conferences 2006-2008, IJCAI 2009
- MSDM 2006-2010, OptMAS-08, MOO-04 Workshops
- Reviewer for:
- Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems
- Computational Intelligence
- Robotics and Autonomous Systems
- AAAI Conferences 2007, 2005, 2010
- IJCAI Conference 2005, 2007
Key Words: Artificial Intelligence, Multiagent Systems, Planning and Control, Emergent Behaviour, Mathematical Interaction Modelling
I am interested in issues and effects arising from the continual change of interaction rules between self-interested agents. To capture, analyse and engineer these effects, I work with a wide range of techniques from the fields of control theory, machine learning, and game theory.
In particular, I am interested in how dynamic effects can be utilised to improve egocentric control schemes and teacher-learner interactions.
The slides' set from the Decision Making in Multiagent Settings Tutorial, that I have co-organized at AAMAS-10, is now available here.
Ph.D. in Computer Science was confered on me by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2008, based on my thesis. My M.Sc. thesis and undergrad studies in Computer Sciences and Mathematics were also completed at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
