iGGi PG Researcher

Currently a student at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), I have delved deep into the realms of artificial intelligence and game design. With a passion for understanding the complexities behind real-time strategy (RTS) games and their dynamic, unpredictable nature, I have committed myself to contribute novel insights to this domain.  


My primary research area is Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning (HRL) for Real-Time Strategy (RTS) games. RTS games, known for their intricate mechanics and vast decision spaces, present a formidable challenge for traditional AI approaches. By employing HRL, I aim to develop agents that can not only understand the multi-layered tactics and strategies of these games but also learn to adapt to ever-changing game scenarios efficiently.  

The main objectives of my research are:

  1. Better Generalization: To create agents that can seamlessly transition between different RTS games or various maps within the same game without extensive retraining. This involves understanding common strategic threads across multiple game domains. 

  2. Efficient Training: RTS games are inherently time-consuming due to their vast decision spaces and prolonged gameplay. My research seeks ways to optimize the training process, ensuring that AI agents can learn faster and with fewer computational resources.
