About me

I'm a Senior Lecturer in the Agents and Intelligent Systems Group in the Department of Informatics, part of the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences at King's College London, UK.

My main research interests lie within the broad area of artificial intelligence. In particular:

  • Intelligent agents and multi-agent systems.
  • Argumentation theoretic models of agent reasoning, communication and dialogue.
  • Strategic considerations for argumentation-based dialogues.
  • Relevance and persuasiveness of arguments.
  • How an agent can develop a model of another agent's mental state.
  • Multi-party argument dialogues.
  • Human-robot communication.
  • Implicit and assumed information in communication.
  • Normative multi-agent systems.
  • Applications of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Details of my past and current research can be found in my publications list.

Thank you for showing an interest in my work.
