I am looking for an assistant professorship to research the theory of feedback controllers for the control of complex autonomous systems, from smart homes to self-driving cars and humanoid robots.
A CV and research statement can be found in the links to the left.
I have published on the theory of global optimization, humanoid robotics, neural networks for perception and control, and opponent modelling in games, and am working on a book expanding my Ph.D. thesis about the theory of global optimization under contract with Springer.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence Studies on a US National Science Foundation postdoc grant
working with Juergen Schmidhuber in Lugano, Switzerland. My Ph.D. is from the
University of Texas where I studied with Risto Miikkulainen. See my About page for contact information and more.
