I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Linköping University, Sweden. My primary research interest is in the field of artificial intelligence, with a focus on automated planning, i.e., the problem of finding a course of action that allows an intelligent agent to move from any situation it finds itself in to one that satisfies its goals.
