My name is Nicolas Verstaevel. I got my Ph.D from University of Toulouse in June 2016, focusing on self-organization of robotic devices through demonstrations, and I’m currently temporary research and teaching assistant at Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. I’m part of the Cooperative Multi-Agent Systems (SMAC) team of the Institute of Research in Informatic of Toulouse (IRIT).
At short term, my objective is to enrich, through post-doctoral positions, my experience while exploring new domains in Artificial Intelligence. At long term, I aspire to become assistant professor and focus my researches on autonomous systems, complexity, self-organization, machine learning and multi-agent systems.
My current researches focus on designing autonomous artificial systems that learn to detect behavioural anomalies in the context of elderly people within the 3PEGASE project.
