Dr Hendrik Baier
Department of Computer Science
University of York
Hendrik joined DC Labs in December 2016 after leaving Leiden in the Netherlands, where he worked as a research fellow in the Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency.
In 2015, he finished his Ph.D. in the Games and AI group at the Department of Knowledge Engineering, Maastricht University. The topic was planning and search — the search for an optimal strategy in a given problem, or just for a good next action to take. He used games as model problems for both adversarial scenarios with multiple agents, as well as optimization problems for a single agent.
Within DC Labs, Hendrik is interested in the intersection of search-based decision making, machine learning, and data analytics in games.
