Welcome to my personal website!

I’m a Research Scientist at Secondmind (previously known as Prowler.io) and a Visiting Professor at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. My mission is to improve our understanding of intelligence. In my research I focus on decision making, learning and generalization - in my opinion key faculties of intelligent agents, both human and artificial.

I obtained a PhD in Economics from Pompeu Fabra University, where, under supervision of Prof. Robin M. Hogarth, I worked on understanding human learning and decision-making, using probabilistic modelling and reinforcement learning. After that I moved to University College London where under supervision of Prof. Ray Dolan and Prof. Peter Dayan I studied human generalisation and function learning, and probed interactions between learning, choice and attention processes. Currently, at Secondmind, I’m developing new model-based reinforcement learning and Bayesian optimization algorithms, implementing them in our open-source toolboxes (Bellman and Trieste), and applying them to real-world problems. At Barcelona Graduate School of Economics I teach reinforcement learning course to data science master students.
