work with mark: job as a research fellow

Between March 2004 and March 2006 I had the fantastic opportunity to work as a research fellow for Prof. Mark d'Inverno ( It was a part time engagement at the math department at University of Westminster : Cavendish School of Computer Science in London.
Mark is a math professor specialising in intelligent agents and also a great pianist. Our goal was to combine his (and mine) two big interests by creating musical agents that could improvise, jam and play together.
I learned a lot in the process and had to read up on math, specification languages, agent theories, genetic algorithms etc. I found so much interesting stuff out there to get totally absorbed in. This blog is partly started to document our research.
