My name is Jasper van der Waa. After my bachelor in Artificial Intelligence, I successfully completed my master's degree in the same field. I am undergoing a life changing event; I am starting my phd! My research is conducted while working for TNO as a Researcher. Their motto "Innovation for life", suits me perfectly.

I am highly interested in the machine learning field of reinforcement learning, both in new state of the art theories and applications ranging from smart homes to robotics. In general I am also interested in machine learning in general, especially the algorithms and the ideas behind them. This is mostly reflected in my choice of study and my theses. I intend to focus on research and development in these areas. I spend my spare time with sports, mostly badminton and martial arts, my pet axolotls and helping indie developers debug their alpha games.

Feel free to look around!
