Research Interests

My research interests include:

  • Distributed artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems.
  • Cooperation and coalition formation.
  • Software architecture and design.

My research focuses on the combination of artificial intelligence, software architecture and game theory in Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) - theory and implementation. I am interested in the design of the single agent as well as the whole system, and in particular in the architectural issues and the interaction protocols. The development of efficient and stable algorithms for agent cooperation has captured a significant part of my research during the last years. Specifically, I have been working in the last years on cooperation and coalition formation in MAS.

I am involved in the RETSINA project, where we design and implement agents to cooperatively perform tasks of information gathering from multi-modal web sources and decision support upon this information. We investigate issues of real time performance, load balancing, interleaving planning and execution, communication and coordination protocols, and human-computer interface.

The RETSINA framework is used in several other projects in which I participate: Thales, Agent aided command and control, and Warren.
