Professional Interests

Software agents, evolutionary computations, evolutionary robotics, evolutionary psychology, autonomous driving, and advanced driver-assistance systems.

Hobbies (Beyond my Work)

Photography, hiking, fluid dynamics, building and piloting RC airplanes

Ongoing Research

Optimizing (via evolutionary computation) the undulatory swimming gaits and the morphology of a fish robot,

Evolving social behaviors of simple agents (modeling nano- and micro-robots) that do not compute,

Machine learning for advanced driver-assistance systems (lane keeping, lane changing, adaptive cruise control, emergency brake assistance, etc.),

Human factors in driving (risk homeostasis, automation startle, flicker vertigo, stress, cognitive overload, tragedy of the commons),

Epigenetic programming as an approach of introducing explicitly controlled gene expression in genetic programming, and

Evolution, adaptation and robustness of locomotion gaits of snake-like robots.
