Anisse Ismaili (PhD)



I am a post-doctoral researcher at RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP), in the Multi-agent Optimization Team of Prof. Atsushi Iwasaki and hosted in Kyushu University by Prof. Makoto Yokoo. I started my PhD on Algorithmic Decision Theory in Université Pierre et Marie Curie, in the Decision, Intelligent Systems and Operations Research (DESIR) department, with Patrice Perny, Nicolas Maudet and Evripidis Bampis, and continued it in Université Paris Dauphine, in the Laboratory for Modeling and Analysis of Decision Aid Systems (LAMSADE), with Jérome Lang, Laurent Gourvès and Julien Lesca.

Hobbies
I used to run long distances. My best times were 5000m-16m36s, 20km-1h12m26s, Marathon-2h39m27s, 100k-8h24m and UltraTrailMontBlanc-41h, but I'm getting older and slower. Always in for sharing a run at any pace (or a beer).
I am also fond of hiking in the middle of nowhere, and riding my bicycle as far as possible.
Here are some resources for studying Japanese.
Tea time troublers from my friend Renaud Detcherry.
