Responsible AI. My interdisciplinary research focuses on the development of practical methods to keep AI systems under meaningful human control and thus avoid responsibility gaps. I take a broader “socio-techno-ethical” perspective, where I combine theories and insights from philosophy and psychology into AI systems. I hope my research will contribute to an increasing responsible development and use of AI systems.

I have a background in electrical engineering, and a big part of my work focuses on energy systems as an application. Other relevant application areas include automated vehicles, AI-support deliberation and negotiation.

If you are a master student and looking for a thesis project with topics such as Responsible AI, AI Ethics, Explainable AI, multi-agent decision making (incl. MARL), feel free to contact me. See ProjectForum or the II group website for some open project descriptions.

AiBLE lab

The built environment faces major societal challenges. Planners, architects, and citizens using or living in these spaces may all have different views and priorities – so any strategy for dealing with the challenges involved must incorporate different preferences into the design process.

The AiBLE Lab, through 4 interdisciplinary PhD projects, investigates how AI can be developed and used in complex real-world scenarios. Our aim is to help reach effective, transparent and lasting decisions and agreements. This means incorporating human feedback into the loop, iteratively improving decision-making and driving behaviour changes. We focus on two important built environment challenges: energy transition and circularity. By using AI to augment human intelligence and support negotiation continuously – while adapting to and driving human behaviour – the AiBLE Lab will close the policy-practice gap responsibly and inclusively. We also aim to accelerate the adoption and acceptance of AI.

AiTech initiative

AiTech is TU Delft’s interdisciplinary research program on awareness, concepts, and design & engineering of autonomous technology under meaningful human control. I was one of the inaugural postdocs of the initiative and am currently a core team member.
