I am an Associate Professor in the Agents, Interaction, and Complexity Group (AIC), Electronics and Computer Science, at the University of Southampton. I am 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. My research combines a number of techniques from Machine learning, AI, Game theory, and HCI.
I have either led or been part of major scientific and industrial research projects including the ORCHID programme within which I developed applications of Human-Agent Collectives. Prior to this I worked on the award-winning ALADDIN project (with BAE Systems) and IDEAS (with SECURE Meters).
I am a member of the ACM E-Energy steering committee and co-organiser of the workshop series on Human-Agent Interaction and was also programme chair for ACM E-Energy 2015. I am a member of the EPSRC Associate Peer Review College and a member of the IET and ACM. I have graduated over 6 of PhD students.
I am currently either leading or working on the following major projects:
