  • My research area is Decision Theory and its applications in Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research. More precisely it concerns preference modeling, multicriteria optimization and group decison making, decision under uncertainty and risk and algorithmic decision theory. On the one hand, we work on the elaboration and the analysis of new models to describe or simulate complex decision making behaviors; on the other hand, we produce algorithms allowing the fast determination of preferred solutions in combinatorial decision problems. The applications concern decision support systems (rational preparation of important human decisions) and automatic decision making (autonomous decision agents).
