My name is Diederik Roijers, and I am hogeschooldocent (senior lecturer) in Technical Computer Science at the HU University of Applied Science Utrecht, and researcher at the AI lab at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). My main research interests are reinforcement learning and planning, and multi-objective decision making. Please check out our tutorials or book for an introduction to multi-objective models and methods for RL and planning, or my publication page for information about our latest research. Other interests of mine are machine learning, evolutionary computing, e-tutoring systems and education.

I did my PhD in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group (presently AMLab) at the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam under the supervision of Shimon Whiteson and Frans Oliehoek. Please check out my PhD project for further details. After that I was a postdoctoral researcher in the TERESA project, at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford, an FWO Postdoctoral Fellow at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and assistant professor Computational Intelligence at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
