Christopher Wilt


I am currently the Chief Technology Officer of Plimpton and Hills.

Prior to that, I was a graduate student in computer science at the University of New Hampshire, where I earned my PhD in computer science. I worked with Professor Wheeler Ruml. My CV can be downloaded here.

While at graduate school, my primary research focus was on heuristic search. The primary focus of my research while at graduate school was different kinds of greedy searches, primarily focused on greedy best-first search, and what greedy best-first search needs to perform well.

I spent the summer of 2012 at Kiva Systems where I did work on path planning, and multiagent path planning. After I returned to UNH, I continued to be interested in multiagent path planning, and have published a paper on the topic that has been accepted to ICAPS-2014.
