Research Projects and Activities

My research centers around intelligent coordination among multiple (semi-)autonomous systems, involving the proactive selection (planning) of physical, communicative, and/or computational actions that improve performance in a multiagent context. My work thus is concerned with how artificial agents should decide what courses of action to commit to given a multiagent world, how they should meet those commitments (including meeting real-time constraints), and how they should revise and renegotiate their commitments based on unexpected events in their environment.

My research group (my students and I) is cleverly (for those who know University of Michigan campus landmarks) called:

My active projects include:

Some of the projects that I have worked on in the past have included:

Our multiagent simulation testbed, MICE, is available via anonymous ftp.
