Personal profile


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

My primary interest is at the intersection of logic, decision theory and game theory. 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 short-list of coarse-grained keywords which represents my interest:

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