I am currently a postdoc/visiting professor at U Pompeu Fabra, working with Hector Geffner.
My cv

Until March 2010, I worked at State Street Associates in Cambridge, MA.
In Spring 2008, I was a postdoctoral researcher in CSAIL (the former AI Lab) at MIT.
I finished my PhD at MIT in December 2007, where I worked with Leslie Kaelbling in the LIS lab on planning in stochastic, relational domains.
In 2003, I received my MS from MIT. I did my undergraduate work at Michigan State University, where I worked with Sridhar Mahadevan on hierarchical reinforcement learning.
