Patrick MacAlpine



I received a BS and MEE degree in Electrical Engineering from Rice University. I'm a member of the Learning Agents Research Group (LARG) led by Peter Stone in the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Austin. A large part of my research is centered around multiagent systems and machine learning where I serve as a leader of the UT Austin Villa 3D Simulation League RoboCup soccer team.

I defended my thesis Multilayered Skill Learning and Movement Coordination for Autonomous Robotic Agents in the Summer of 2017 (defense slides, video).

I taught CS344M: Autonomous Multiagent Systems during the Fall 2015 semester.
