I am a Reader at the Department of Computer Science, School of Engineering and Applied Science, at Aston University, Birmingham, UK. I am a member of the ALICE research group of the Systems Analytics Research Institute, SARI.

I graduated from the Department of Computing at Imperial College London and did my PhD at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Imperial College London, at the Intelligent Systems and Networks group, supervised by Prof Philippe De Wilde.

Work in Brief

In most complex systems there is a mechanism that maps simple local rules to the macroscopic behaviour of these systems. We use agent-based modelling and simulation to investigate the following questions that arise from this fact:

Recent research highlights

My work is in the area of artificial intelligence. I am particularly interested in applying machine learning techniques to intelligent agents and multi-agent systems, with a focus on societies and smart cities applications. Some recent research highlights:
