Short Bio

I obtained a PhD in computer science (distributed artificial intelligence) at the Univestity of Southampton in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Alex Rogers and Dr. Sarvapali Ramchurn. Following my PhD, I spent a year at Microsoft Research, Cambridge investigating the AI aspect of smart energy systems. I came back to the mothership and spent two years as a senior researcher University of Southampton. I then moved to Oxford to join the Machine Learning Research Group at University of Oxford as a Principal Researcher. After Oxford, I have been in a few 'Head of' roles in industry and academia with the final stop at the Brain Tumour Charity. For more information, please see my LinkedIn Profile.

My background is in computer science [BSc in Computer Science (2005) and MSc in Software Engineering (2007)] and prior to my PhD study, I worked as a research programmer developing intelligent software in the Intelligent Agents research group at the University of Southampton.
