Roy de Kleijn is a PhD candidate working on an EU-funded research project RoboHow on web-enabled and experience-based cognitive robots that learn complex everyday manipulation tasks. His PhD research is focused on developing computational models of cognition for possible use in robotic systems. In addition, he tries to integrate and extend the available psychological work on the planning and control of everyday actions, including the programming and monitored execution of action sequences, tool use, and representation of the agent, and his or her effectors and body.
His other lines of research focus on the computational modeling of attentional and perceptual processes, and community detection algorithms in large-scale networks.
