Associate Professor in Artificial Intelligence

The University of Melbourne

I am an Associate Professor in Artificial intelligencee at the School of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne. I’m a member of the Agent Lab group and the Digital Agriculture, Food and Wine lab.

My research focuses on how to introduce different approaches to the problem of inference in sequential decision problems, as well as applications to autonomous systems in agriculture.

I completed my PhD at the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Group, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, under the supervision of Prof. Hector Geffner. I was a research fellow for 3 years under the supervision of Prof. Peter Stuckey and Prof. Adrian Pearce, working on solving Mining Scheduling problems through automated planning, constraint programming and operations research techniques.
