Understanding understanding


'TRYING TO UNDERSTAND
HOW PEOPLE UNDERSTAND'

I am a currently a lecturer at the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the Radboud University Nijmegen. I teach robotics and agent-based programming.

My main research interest is to understand people's inferential capacities that underlie their communicative abilities. For example, how is it possible that we can understand a foreigner who does not speak our language but uses novel gestures to communicate? My work involves computational modeling (e.g. Bayesian and Structure Mapping Theory), robotic/agent-based simulations, computational complexity analysis and philosophy of mind.
