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 and their application to Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) 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).

As part of my work I have won a number of awards including the Prisoner’s Dilemma Competition (2004,2005), Robocup Infrastructure Competition (2007), AAMAS best papers (2010,2013,2015), and runner up for the IJCAI-JAIR 2016 best paper prize.

I am a member of the ACM E-Energy steering committee, a PC/SPC member for AAMAS, IJCAI, AAAI, 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 PhD students.

I currently teach Data Management (COMP1204) and run the departmental Industrial Placements programme (ELEC3200).
