Adrian K. Agogino

I am a researcher with the Robust Software Engineering Group in the Intelligent Systems Division at NASA Ames Research Center, employed through the University of California, Santa Cruz.

My research interests are in the fields of machine learning, complex learning systems and multiagent control. My early work includes novel visualization methods for complex systems and ways to better adapt evolutionary algorithms to multiagent online environments. More recent work includes using reinforcement learning in multiagent systems. Since 2004 I have been working on complex systems projects including air traffic flow management, rocket engine analysis, and coordination in multi-rover learning.  My publications focus on the fields of machine learning, multiagent systems, reinforcement learning, evolutionary systems and visualization of complex systems.
