I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, where I work with Prof. Peter Stone in the Learning Agents Research Group. My work is supported by a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

My research interests are in the broad area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems, with a focus on sequential decision making under uncertainty. The long-term goal of my research is to create intelligent agents that can interact effectively with other agents whose behaviours are initially unknown. This involves a number of challenging problems, such as efficient learning and adaptation in the presence of uncertainty as well as robustness with respect to violations of prior beliefs. The short video on the right describes some of my work toward this goal. For more details, please take a look at my publications below.

Prior to Austin, I obtained a Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from The University of Edinburgh, where I worked with Prof. Subramanian Ramamoorthy in the Robust Autonomy and Decisions Group. Before Edinburgh, I obtained a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Darmstadt University of Technology. See here for a short CV.

As a student at TU Darmstadt, I wrote an open-source Matlab toolbox for Support Vector Machines (SVMs). The toolbox supports both inductive and transductive SVMs, multi-class classification, automatic parameter search, and includes a demo function with 2D visualisation. See the manual for more details.
