I am currently a Senior Lecturer/Research Fellow in the Intelligent Agents Group at RMIT University in Melbourne (in the School of Computer Science and IT), Australia. I did my PhD and M.Sc in the Cognitive Robotics Group at the University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada) on topics related to the Golog family of agent programming languages and reasoning about action and change. Before that, I got my BSc in Computer Science at Universidad Nacional del Sur in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.

Position Available - Research Fellow - "Optimisation of embedded virtual complex systems by re-using a library of available components"

We are looking for a postdoc in the area of reasoning about action, automated planning and synthesis, intelligent agents, and optimisation as part of our recently awarded ARC Discovery grant "Optimisation of embedded virtual complex systems by re-using a library of available components" (Sebastian Sardina from RMIT, Maurice Pagnucco from UNSW, and Giuseppe De Giacomo from La Sapienza University). The project is a follow up on our ongoing research on automatic behavior composition. Please email me if you are interested. More information on the project and position can be found here.


Research Interests

In general, my research is in the areas of knowledge representation and reasoning and intelligent agents in Artificial Intelligence. In particular I am interested in the following topics:

  • reasoning about action and change;
  • automated planning & planning within agent programming languages;
  • agent ability and knowledge precondition for agent programs;
  • formal models of deliberation/planning;
  • procedural & declarative specification of goals;
  • models of rationality, BDI-style logics.

If you are a student and would like to know a bit more about possible areas for projects, you can check my project page here.


Teaching in 2012

In 2012 I will be teaching the following two courses:


I am also the program coordinator for BH013 Honours in Computer Science, the Minor Thesis part of the Master program, and summer projects. Please click here for more details and to book a meeting for this.
