Please note that the website is slightly outdated as I've moved from Energy Systems Catapult as of November 2017. More info on my LinkedIn Profile.
I am an AI scientist who is interested in applying artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to develop intelligent systems. I divide my time between the Machine Learning Research Group at University of Oxford and the Energy Systems Catapult, UK.
I obtained a PhD in computer science (distributed artificial intelligence) at the Univestity of Southampton in 2013 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. Then, I came back to the mothership and spent two years in the AIC Research Group at the University of Southampton applying AI to develop smart energy systems. After that, I moved to Machine Learning Research Group at University of Oxford to continue my research on smart energy systems where I am currently a post-doctoral researcher. In 2016, I joined Energy Systems Catapult (an elite tech and innovation centre setup by the Govt. of UK's innovation agency - InnovateUK) as the Lead Data Scientist.
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.
