Real name: 
Gavin Rens
Degree: PhD

BSc Computer Science (UNISA, 2005). BSc (Hons) Computer Science (UNISA, 2008). MSc Computer Science (UNISA, 2010). PhD Computer Science (UKZN, 2014).

My research interests are in the field of cognitive robotics, particularly, the development of logic-based approaches for specification and design of intelligent agents. And more precisely, I am interested in combining decision theory into logical systems for automatic plan generation in autonomous agents who need to deal with uncertainties in their environment. Lately, I have been working in probabilistic belief change (revision and update), including when the agent may have gaps in its knowledge. POMDPs have been a major theme in my work.
