Scarllette Ellis


I'm a PhD Student part of the ART-AI CDT and Bath Reinforcement Learning Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath. My Supervisor is Özgür Şimşek. I earned my Masters in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Bath. My research is on hierarchical skill discovery and intrinsic motivation.

Research Interests: My research is focused on how AI agents develop high-level subgoals that assist in completing complex tasks. I am working on unifying approaches that study the topological structure of problems, with methods that maximise the amount of information agents can gain about a task. This work seeks to create reliable methods of finding useful subgoals for agents that are both Human-understandable and applicable to many problems.
