I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Artificial Intelligence in the School of Informatics at The University of Edinburgh. Within the school, I am affiliated with the Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications and the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour.

My research interests are in the areas of autonomous agents, multi-agent systems, machine learning, and game theory, with a focus on sequential decision making under uncertainty. The long-term goal of my research is to create intelligent autonomous agents that can interact effectively with other agents to accomplish tasks in complex dynamic environments. This involves a number of challenging problems, such as efficient learning and adaptation in the presence of uncertainty as well as robustness with respect to violations of prior beliefs. The short video on the right describes some of my work toward this goal. For more details, please take a look at my publications below.

Prior to Edinburgh, I was a Feodor Lynen Postdoctoral Fellow at UT Austin where I worked with Prof. Peter Stone. Prior to Austin, I obtained Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in Artificial Intelligence from The University of Edinburgh, and a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from TU Darmstadt. See my CV for more details.

As a student at TU Darmstadt, I wrote an open-source Matlab toolbox for Support Vector Machines (SVMs). The toolbox supports both inductive and transductive SVMs, multi-class classification, automatic parameter search, and includes a demo function with 2D visualisation. See the manual for more details.
