I'm a PhD student in the Agents, Interaction, and Complexity Group (AIC), Electronics and Computer Science, at the University of Southampton and University College London. My main interest is to understand how people perceive and interact with Autonomous Systems, especially in those that users are not aware that they work on behalf of us. I'm looking to implement visual cues that can change how people perceive the systems without complicate them. Moreover, I want to implement IoT technology on such system allowing users to observe and manipulate them through the web.
He research Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp). Currently his work focuses on helping people make sense of data, from the Internet of Things, from Energy Smart Meters, or from the Web, and on interaction with autonomous systems in everyday situations. Imagine your home appliances turned on autonomously to make the most of renewable energy, and your energy meter was able to automatically switch you to the tariff that it considers most convenient for you: exciting or scary? How do we best design interaction around such a scenario?

He is an Associate Professor in the Agents, Interaction, and Complexity Group (AIC), Electronics and Computer Science, at the University of Southampton. He is interested in the development of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems for socio-technical applications such as smart energy systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and disaster response. His research combines a number of techniques from Machine learning, AI, Game theory, and HCI.
