About me

A photo of meI was a PhD student with the Intelligent Systems group at the Utrecht University in The Netherlands. Here I worked on the AIDA project 'Agents Interacting in Dialogues with Argumentation', which was supervised by Prof. Dr. Mr. Henry Prakken, Dr. Gerard Vreeswijk and Prof. Dr. John-Jules Meyer. This project focused on testing the applicability of argumentation in multi-agent interactions. Do the apparent benefits hold in a practical implementation and how and on which points can effectiveness be measured? I successfully defended my thesis in May 2013 to receive the degree of doctor.
