I am fascinated by the idea of building agents that use environmental feedback to make better decisions. As a result, my research interests lie in Reinforcement Learning and Machine Learning.

In 2017, I started as a PhD student in the area of Deep Reinforcement Learning at the University of Amsterdam, supervised by Max Welling.

I studied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam where I obtained my Master's degree (cum laude). My MSc thesis was on the subject of Deep Reinforcement Learning for Coordinated Traffic Light Controllers.
