Hendrik Baier is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University. He holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Darmstadt Technical University and a M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from Osnabrück University. His current research interests revolve around Monte-Carlo Tree Search (MCTS), a best-first search algorithm that uses sampling to evaluate states. Hendrik focuses on both understanding and improving MCTS and related search techniques, using one-player and two-player games as application domains. He is particularly inspired by the challenge of writing a master-level Go program.
