Dr. Hauskrecht received his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1997. He received his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Slovak Technical University, Bratislava, Slovakia in 1988.

Dr. Hauskrecht’s primary field of research interest is Artificial intelligence. However, he often works at the intersection of Computer Science with other fields, namely , probability theory, statistics, operations research, decision and control theory. His current research interests are in the areas of: Planning, reasoning ,and optimization in the presence of uncertainty; Machine learning and data mining; Applications of AI in medicine and finance.

The main objective of his research is to extend our abilitites to model and solve complex high-dimensional problems with stochastic components by developing: (1) new modeling frameworks allowing us to better represent special problem features and structure, and (2) efficient algorithmic solutions operating upon such model
