I am currently looking for PhD students that want to work with me in one of the following topics:

  • Evolutionary Game Theory: analysis of bio-inspired systems with a focus on the impact of different network topologies.

  • Machine Learning and Control: assessing the robustness and scalability of multi-agent machine learning algorithms in control and game theory.

  • Game AI: multi-agent reinforcement learning in computer games and procedural content generation.

Open positions:

Applicants for a PhD position should hold a BSc and/or a Master degree in relevant areas, have a strong motivation for research in one of the above topics and proved academic performance or relevant project experience.

We offer an excellent research environment within the School of Computer Science and a strong supervisory team, with great opportunities to grow.

If you are interested, please send me an email with your CV and transcripts. Also, a short project proposal would be an indication of your motivation to conduct research in one of these areas.
