I work as an R&D engineer at Science [&] Technology B.V. in Delft, The Netherlands. At the same time, I try to be still active as a scientist affiliated as a visiting researcher at Algorithmics group at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, in the group of Cees Witteveen. Before moving to Delft, I spent more than 2 years as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Agent Technology Center (ATG) of the Czech Technical University in Prague, in the group of Michal Pěchouček. I received the doctoral degree in computer science from Clausthal University of Technology, where I worked in the Computational Intelligence Group under supervision of Jürgen Dix and I completed my MSc. degree in computer science (artificial intelligence and distributed systems) at the Comenius University in Bratislava under supervision of Ján Šefránek .

I work to enable construction of resilient knowledge-intensive autonomous systems. My fields of expertise include (re-)configuration of information flows in information aggregating systems, planning, reactive action selection, trajectory planning in multi-robot systems, as well as knowledge representation and reasoning for autonomous decision making and multi-agent simulations. While being primarily interested in fundamental insights into the problems, I strive to ground my research in industrial applications and societal challenges and my work is driven by prototyping and experimentation.

My broad research interests include: artificial intelligence, multi-agent systems, configuration and reconfiguration of knowledge-intensive systems, cognitive robotics, agent architectures, agent-oriented programming and software engineering, multi-agent planning, plan repair, multi-robotics, coordination, teamwork, knowledge representation and reasoning, interaction with dynamic environments
