Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in artificial intelligence and
particularly focus on automated planning and scheduling. Recent work
has revolved around transportation and logistics problems and
distributed problem-solving in domains featuring high levels of
executional uncertainty as well as prominent human-computer interaction
issues. A common characteristic of these domains is the need to
maximize utility or reward in problem spaces that often defy optimal
solutions due to environmental uncertainty and/or the need to keep pace
with execution. I am also interested in the integration and
interleaving of automated planning methods into large-scale,
human-directed scheduling systems. I have adapted machine learning
methods to boost planning performance and am exploring adaptation of
such techniques to the scheduling aspect of an integrated system.
