About me

I am Joshua Moerman, PhD student at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands) at the computer science department iCIS. I am currently doing research in the field active automata learning and also a bit of PAC learning. My interests also include algorithms, functional programming, homotopy theory, coalgebra and category theory. Some of the software I write during my research can be found on Gitlab. Other bits and pieces of software can be found on Github.
