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.
