Research Interests

My research interests are in Artificial Intelligence, in particular, the area of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) including the following topics: Agent Reasoning (How can agents behave in smart ways), Agent Learning (How can agents learn from the environment), Agent Architecture and Agent Programming Languages (How to effectively develop agent-based systems), Logics and Verification (How to verify and validate large-scale Multi-Agent Systems). I’m also interested in Agent-Oriented Software Development (e.g., how to integrate MAS engineering with mainstream software engineering models, languages, frameworks and tools), and MAS applications in specific domains.
