I am Deputy Head of the Intelligent Systems and Networks Group. My research programme focuses on a broad range of interests in Intelligent Systems, spanning human-network interaction (in particular the use of Affective Computing in this context), multi-agent systems (specifically norm-governed and socio-cognitive agent societies), and ad hoc networks (including self-organisation and Quality-of-Service (QoS) provisioning).
I have been involved in many European projects developing intelligent agent and multi-agent systems, and in particular was Project Manager of the IST project ALFEBIITE (IST-1999-10298) from 2000-2004. From 1998-2002 I was involved in the FIPA agent standardisation initiative. I am currently involved in research collaborations with partners in Japan and India.
My teaching includes a first year course on Scientific Computing, third year courses on Artificial Intelligence and Human-Computer Interaction, and the Summer Group Projects for the Information System Engineering (ISE) stream, where students develop a multi-agent e-commerce system.
