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.
