Dr Frits de Nijs

Dr Frits de Nijs’ research interests are in the optimisation of decisions in sequential decision-making problems, a necessary component of artificial intelligence agents operating in dynamic systems. In particular, his research focuses on establishing cooperation in situations where multiple such agents interact. For example, the coordination of home energy management systems to track renewable generation while maximising the home owner’s comfort. Before joining Monash in 2018, he worked on these problems towards a PhD degree from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. Frits works with OPTIMA CI Prof. Maria Garcia de la Banda.
