Post-doc at GREYC, Caen
I am doctor in Computer Science, Multi-Agent Systems, both from the University of Montpellier 2 (France) and the University of Utrecht (The Netherlands). My research interests combine Multi-Agent Systems, Stochastic Planning (Markov Decision Processes) and Robotics. I am currently hired for studying how to foster the collaboration between multiple humans and robots. I recently formalized and solved Advice-MDPs (Markov Decision Processes augmented with human advising) and the Dynamic Maximum Coverage Problem (adapting the positionning of a team of robots for best covering the surroundings of rescuers on the move, featuring anticipation, detailed perception models, coverage optimization, and multi-robot coordination). I will soon be involved in a project for deploying robots in hospitals. As a parallel track, I continue the research initiated during my thesis: how to model human cultures and how to use such models for fostering multi-agent collaboration. My field of expertise ranged from building models of human cultures, social simulations, and the design of culturally-sensitive autonomous agents.
I am currently working at the GREYC laboratory on the GARDES project in the MAD team. This project studies the design of teams composed of humans and robots for patrol missions.
