Christian received his PhD in 2014 from the University of Toronto. His research focuses on techniques for planning under uncertainly, and using planning techniques as a computation core for a range of applications and sub-fields. Recently, his research has focused on the acquisition of action theories; either manually specified or induced in a data-driven fashion.
