Pedro A. Ortega is postdoctoral researcher at the GRASP Robotics Lab, University of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Daniel D. Lee. His research focuses on the mathematical foundations of artificial intelligence, machine learning and cybernetics. His work includes the application of information-theoretic and statistical mechanical ideas to sequential decision-making, which has led to contributions in novel bounded rationality models and recasting adaptive control as a causal inference problem. He obtained his PhD in Engineering from the University of Cambridge (Prof. Zoubin Ghahramani), and he has been a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Engineering in Cambridge (Prof. Simon Godsill), at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics/Intelligent Systems (Daniel A. Braun) and at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (Prof. Naftali Tishby).
