Research interests

I research effective and scalable ways to develop intelligent systems that can process human procedural knowledge, such as policies and instructions. I am interested in approaches that acquire and represent this kind of knowledge in a way that enables automatic reasoning and learning. I address this problem as a whole, from the extraction of meaning from natural language resources, to the coordination of activities in decentralised multi-agent collaborations.
