My main research interests focus on knowledge representation and reasoning, with an emphasis on answer set programming and normative multi-agent systems.
Answer set programming (ASP) is a declarative programming paradigm. Programs are written in AnsProlog, a logic programming language using the answer set semantics. AnsProlog is a knowledge representation language that allows the programmer to describe a problem and the requirements on its solutions in an intuitive way, rather than the algorithm to find the solutions to the problem. In interested in the theory, implementation and application of ASP.
Normative multi-agents systems offer a human society-like approach to govern open distributed systems where the norms regulate the behaviour of the various components. In interested in the theory, implementation and application of ASP. For some of the implementational aspects, I use ASP as the implementation and reasoning behind the normative system.
As a side, I also interested in web-services, machine learning, argumentation and game theory. Apart from computer science research, I am also investigating the computer science pedagogy.
