Artificial Intelligence Research attempts to understand intelligent behaviour in a constructive way by building computational models of observing and learning, problem solving and decision making, planning and acting, natural language understanding and so on. My own research amounts to walking through some parts of AIR, namely those touching advanced forms of problem solving. This includes topics such as constraint satisfaction, explanation generation, preference modeling, and reasoning with and about preferences. The insights gained through these studies not only allowed me to build intelligent software systems for tasks such as configuration and scheduling, but also helped me to better understand processes and mechanisms in the social world around me.
