Sylvie Thiébaux

Senior Professor and AAAI Fellow


My interests are in artificial intelligence and optimisation, in particular automated planning and scheduling, model-based diagnosis, combinatorial optimisation and search, reasoning under uncertainty, and their applications to energy and transport. I have published over 100 papers in these areas. For details, see my home page.


My educational background includes a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from National Institute of Applied Sciences in 1991, a M.Sc. from Florida Tech in 1992, and a Ph.D. from University of Rennes in 1995, all in Computer Science. I have held appointments with INRIA and CSIRO. Since 2001, I have been with the Australian National University, and from 2003 to 2018, I was a contributor to National ICT Australia (wich became Data61 in 2016). In 2008, I was on long service leave and on sabbatical at LAAS-CNRS. In 2009-2011, I was NICTA’s Canberra Laboratory director (150 staff and PhD students).

I am a AAAI Fellow and Co-Editor in Chief of the Artificial Intelligence journal.
