I am interested in the acquisition, representation and organization of knowledge and its use in reasoning.

My research investigates generic ways for an intelligent agent to organize its past experience so that it is available for reuse. I have developed a generic episodic memory module that can be attached to a variety of applications and used for different tasks. Encapsulating the complexity of such a memory into a separate subsystem should reduce the complexity the overall system while allowing research to focus on the generic aspects of memory organization and retrieval in isolation of a specific domain and task.
