I am a Reader in the School of Informatics
at The University of
Edinburgh, where I am affiliated with the Institute of Perception,
Action and Behaviour. I am an Executive Committee Member
of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics.
I lead the Robust Autonomy and Decisions research group,
whose focus is on building robustly autonomous robotic systems and other decision making agents, capable of intelligently working with humans and other robots. This involves the development of new models and algorithmic techniques for (interactive) machine learning, planning and decision making, as well as practical work involving robots, wearable and networked sensors and human behavioural experiments. This is
motivated by applications involving autonomous robotics, capable of actively learning and reasoning about models, and the uses of such interactively intelligent robots in homes, factories and field environments such as energy and environmental systems.
Previously, I was at the Artificial Intelligence Lab in The University of Texas
Also, I spent several years working with National
Instruments Corp. in the control
design, dynamic simulation and computer
