In this Ph.D. thesis, we study how autonomous vehicles can learn to act safely and avoid accidents, despite sharing the road with human …

We consider the problem of robust and adaptive model predictive control (MPC) of a linear system, with unknown parameters that are …

We propose MDP-GapE, a new trajectory-based Monte-Carlo Tree Search algorithm for planning in a Markov Decision Process in which …

We consider the problem of planning in a Markov Decision Process (MDP) with a generative model and limited computational budget. …

Realistic environments often provide agents with very limited feedback. When the environment is initially unknown, the feedback, in the …

Robust and adaptive stabilisation and constraint satisfaction for linear systems.

Reward-free exploration is a reinforcement learning setting recently studied by Jin et al., who address it by running several …
