My research interests focus on developing artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that can either solve, or be taught to solve complex problems such as playing computer games. On the one hand, modern computer games are extraordinarily complex domains, which, in many cases, require algorithms that are beyond the state of the art of AI. On the other hand, algorithms developed to solve computer games, in addition to have applications to the videogame industry, can be impactful in many other real-life problems.
