My work focuses on advanced planning and scheduling techniques, mostly aimed at the manufacturing industry, but more recently also in the financial sector. Other research interests include distributed (agent-based) problem solving, in particular for dynamic problems. Furthermore, the application of constraint-based reasoning techniques on planning (and vice versa) and the application of Artificial Intelligence in general on (computer) games have my interest.
You can find a list of papers that I've written or co-authored here.

Also, I've recently come across the Geograph British Isles Project, which aims to collect photographs for every square kilometre of Great Britain and Ireland. I've been using it as an excuse to explore my local area, and you can find the results of that on my profile page.
