About Me

I am a Lecturer (Assist. Prof.) at the Agents, Interaction and Complexity Research Group, University of Southampton. Before that I was a Senior Research Fellow working on the ORCHID project, which addresses many major challenges within human-agent collectives, advancing the state of the art in many areas of artificial intelligence, including machine learning, game theory and decision making theory.
