Assistant professor, Intelligent Systems, Department Interactive Intelligence

My research interests include, but are not limited to the following:

  • normative and organization-aware agents
  • human-agent/robot teamwork
  • empirical software engineering for agent programming
  • programming language semantics
  • specification and verification for agent programming languages

Since September 2008, I am assistant professor in the Interactive Intelligence (II) section at Delft University of Technology.

My aim is to develop foundations and techniques for the creation of socially adaptive software, i.e., software that can take into account continuously changing norms of its social context in deciding what to do.

My research is set in the context of the design of programming languages and modelling techniques for autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.

I combine formal rigor as a point of departure with empirical research to get an understanding of how developed techniques can be used in practice. The agent programming language that is being developed in the II group is the GOAL language.
