Verstaevel, Nicolas Dr.

Associate Research Fellow

Overview


Dr. Nicolas Verstaevel is currently an Associate Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence at the SMART Infrastructure Facility at the University of Wollongong (UOW). He received his PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Toulouse in 2016. After one year as temporary research and teaching assistant and a postdoctoral position at the University of Toulouse, Dr. Verstaevel joined SMART's team in 2018.

Dr. Verstaevel’s research interests focus on designing adaptive multi-agent systems to solve real world complex problems. Domains of application are as various as robotics, smart cities, assisted living, or energy optimisation. This wide range of problematics and applications involves interdisciplinary methods and innovative solutions to challenge the inherent complexity of a more and more connected world.

He is a member of the SMART IoT Hub where he confronts its expertise to various problems.
