Personal profile


I work as a postdoctoral researcher in KRR group, led by  Frank van Harmelen, which is a part of Artifical intelligence research unit at the Computer Science department of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My research is funded by the NWO TOP-Grant project MaestroGraph.

My primary interest lies in logic, decision theory and game theory, and their interactions. In particular, I like to pursue research on foundations, and investigate new algorithmic and conceptual aspects of things. Lately, I also got an interest in statistical relational learning.  The following is a list of coarse-grained keywords which represents my high-level interests:

  • Logic in Computer Science
  • Algorithmic Game/Decision Theory
  • Relational Machine Learning
