Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the following fields:

  • Statistical relational AI (StarAI), specifically, probabilistic inference in relational domains
  • Text understanding, specifically, annotations and context representations
  • Human-aware AI, specifically, online decision making in human-aware agents

My PhD thesis belongs to the field of StarAI topic-wise and concentrates on the Lifted Junction Tree Algorithm (LJT). You can find more information about LJT here.
