What I do
I am a researcher at TNO's department Human-Machine Teaming, in the team Human-Agent/Robot Teaming, a PhD student at TU Delft's department Interactive Intelligence, and affiliated to the Hybrid Intelligence Centre. Their shared mission is to understand and engineer the collaboration between AI agents and humans to complement each other. By being part of these institutes, I can connect and accelerate research on these topics.
Within my PhD research I answer the question what an AI should explain to humans and how it can generate such explanations. My research contributes to a more responsible use of AI systems by providing humans the needed understanding how such systems make their decisions.
At TNO my research revolves around the development of future AI systems that can effectively and responsibly collaborate with humans, instead of systems that only maximize some performance metric. Aside from several other projects, I lead the research on explainable AI within TNO’s research program Appl.AI.
