M.Sc. in Computer Science (Information Systems & Robotics and Machine Vision fields), Computer Science Department, University of Crete, Greece, 1999. Interests: Artificial Intelligence; multi-agent systems; reinforcement learning in multi-agent systems; coalition formation Favourites: Scientific | Non-scientific From December 2006 to January 2011, I was working as a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton. I was a member of the IAM Group in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, working with Professor Nick Jennings.
