Rafael H. Bordini

Rafael Heitor Bordini is a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Durham. His research interests are centred mainly on agent-oriented programming languages, verification of multi-agent systems by model checking, and applications of multi-agent systems to social simulation. He was a Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, from 2002 to 2004, and before that he was an invited lecturer at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, from 1999. He has a B.Sc. in Computer Science (1991), an MSc in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in 1994, and received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of London (University College London) in 1999.
