I'm an Assistant Professor at the
Department of Computer Science and Engineering of
Instituto Superior Técnico and a Senior Researcher at
INESC-ID, working with the
Intelligent Agents and Synthetic Characters Group.
Prior to my current appointments at IST
and INESC-ID, I was a short-term researcher at the
Robotic Vision Lab (ISR Lisbon), and a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the
Computer Science Department, Carnegie Mellon University,
Prof. Manuela Veloso.
I completed my PhD on Electrical and
Computer Engineering at
Instituto Superior Técnico under the supervision of
Prof. M. Isabel Ribeiro.
I am interested in the application of
machine learning in the development of general intelligent
autonomous agents capable of interacting with complex, possibly
unknown environments. Concretely, my primary research interests
are in general reinforcement learning both in single and multiagent
systems and in the applications of this framework to real world
problems, including robotic and sensor network applications. I am
also particularly interested in developing computational models that
may contribute to a better understanding of learning in biological
