Boris Belousov is a member of the SKILLS4ROBOTS project. Prior to joining IAS as a PhD student in February 2016, he received a MSc degree in Communications and Multimedia Engineering from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, supported by a competitive DAAD scholarship for international students based on academic achievements. His BSc degree in applied mathematics and physics with a major in Electrical Engineering and Cybernetics was awarded by Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.

Boris is working towards combining optimal control and information theory with applications to robotics and reinforcement learning. Motivated by the vision of intelligent systems of the future, that autonomously set and accomplish goals, learn from experience, and adapt to changing conditions, Boris studies the fundamental principles of learning and control based on statistical decision theory.
