I am currently doing a PhD at the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering of Maastricht University, where I am working on the ERC-funded Digital Ludeme Project. In Fall 2020 I was a Research Intern at Facebook AI Research. Previously, I worked for two years on the C-Cure project as a PhD student at the Artificial Intelligence Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Before that, I got a B.Sc. in Kowledge Engineering and a M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence, both from the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering of Maastricht University.
Within the field of Artificial Intelligence, my main research interests are in Reinforcement Learning, other variants of Machine Learning, and Search/Planning algorithms.
Outside of Artificial Intelligence research, I am also interested in programming languages (pros and cons of different languages), optimizing software (reading things like “What Every Programmer Should Know About Memory”), gaming, and esports.
