I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Flowers team of Pierre-Yves Oudeyer at Inria (Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique) in Bordeaux, France.

My research interests are Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Cognitive Science. My main focus are learning mechanisms.

I am fascinated by the impressive learning abilities of humans and animals. We are able to adapt efficiently to new and diverse environments and tasks. I want to develop learning algorithms, which allow artificial systems such as robots to have similar learning abilities. I believe one way of achieving this goal is to use the principles behind the learning mechanisms of our brains.

Here is a list of research fields in which I am active:
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Optimization Algorithms
  • Transfer Learning
  • Neural Networks
  • Cognitive Science
  • Cognitive Modeling

My research page lists some of my ongoing and completed research projects.

A chronological list of papers and other documents is on my publications page.
