I am a postdoctoral research assistant in artificial intelligence at Foerster AI Research working with Prof. Jakob Foerster at the University of Oxford.

Prior to this, I was a DPhil (Ph.D.) student in artificial intelligence at St Catherine’s College, University of Oxford, under the supervision of Prof. Philip Torr and Prof. Shimon Whiteson. I received a MPhys degree from Exeter College, University of Oxford in 2012 with Prof. Ard Louis, and a MSc Computer Science from Kellogg College, University of Oxford in 2013 with Prof. Bob Coecke.

I have published both foundational machine learning research, as well as a variety of highly interdisciplinary works spanning climate science, economics, and other disciplines. My work is bringing deep multi-agent reinforcement learning to a variety of real-world applications.

Please find my CV here.


Feb 4, 2022 I have been awarded an EPSRC IAA Doctoral Impact Fund for bringing my recent research on deep multi-agent reinforcement learning to application in cybersecurity.
Feb 3, 2022 I am now chairing the AI for Agent-Based Modelling community which strives to stimulate research on agent-based modelling and AI method research.
Jan 31, 2022 Excited to be starting my postdoctoral research assistant position with Foerster AI Research today.
Jan 18, 2022 One of my papers has been accepted at AISTATS 2022 for oral presentation!
Nov 23, 2021 I have now formally been granted my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) title!
