Short Bio

I am a research director and computer science professor, who has worked in Belgium, the Netherlands, the UK, and is working in France since 2018. My research interests mainly focus on understanding intelligence and using this knowledge to build AI in a multiagent context (our world is multiagent). To this end my research revolves around the development of game theoretic techniques for training and evaluation of intelligent agents, as well as on the development of dynamic game theory as a foundation for learning in cooperative and competitive multi-agent settings. Relatedly, I also work on multi-robot systems.

I am a scientist at Google DeepMind (Paris/London), where I lead both the Game Theory and Multi-Agent teams. I joined DeepMind in 2017, and I am also still affiliated as a professor with the University of Liverpool, which I joined in 2013. Before that I was a professor at Maastricht University. I am also a guest-professor at the University of Leuven (DTAI group).

I obtained my PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, in 2004, and did a postdoc at Hasselt University before moving to Maastricht University in 2005.
