Pascal Bercher

I studied Computer Science (Diploma) from 2003 to 2009 at the University of Freiburg. My specialization was Artificial Intelligence (AI). My sub-specialization in the field of AI was/is planning. My side subject was Cognitive Science (CS); I am also privately interested in psychology and philosophy of mind (both are part disciplines of CS).

Since July of 2009, I am a phD student and working in the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre SFB/Transregio 62 (SFB-TRR-62), part project A1 (adaptive planning and decision).

I am working in the field of hierarchical (and, in particular, hybrid) planning. My focus lies on the theoretical foundation of these approaches, the development of heuristics to efficiently solve the respective problems, as well as in the practical application of the technology. For further details, I refer to my dissertation abstract "Hybrid Planning -- Theoretical Foundations and Practical Applications" (ICAPS 2015 Doctoral Consortium).
