Accepting PhDs



I am a researcher on automated planning, goal and plan recognition, multiagent systems, BDI agents, and machine learning. I currently hold a Chair of Computing Science at the University of Aberdeen. I am a Senior Member of the ACM and of AAAI. Before my current position, I was a Professor of AI at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil, and worked as a Project Scientist in Multiagent Systems at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University after completing a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the same university. I obtained my PhD degree at King's College London, with a thesis on Extending agent languages for multiagent domains under the supervision of Professor Michael Luck and co-supervised by Professor Andrew Jones. Prior to my full-time academic career, I worked in the industry as a contractor for Hewlett-Packard Brazil, and worked on a variety of projects with some very interesting people.

Research Overview

My overall research area is Artificial Intelligence and my research spans the areas of Automated Planning, Autonomous Agents and Applications of Machine Learning. The main goal of my research is to develop practical reasoning mechanisms as a means to both refine the capabilities of autonomous agents and to understand reasoning in general. To accomplish this objective, I work on integrating data-driven and symbolic techniques for reasoning and decision-making while maintaining a low complexity for the description formalisms, helping to achieve explainability for human users.
