I'm a Reader in Explainable AI in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, and a Safe & Ethical AI Research Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute, the UK's national institute for data science.

I previously spent five wonderful years as a Postdoc and Senior Researcher in the Torr Vision Group at the University of Oxford, working with Phil Torr. Prior to this I spent two great years as a Postdoc in the Computation and Cognition Lab at Stanford with Noah Goodman. I started my life as an academic with a PhD in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Purdue with Jeff Siskind, playing with board games and Lincoln Logs.

My research broadly involves the confluence of computer vision, robotics, natural-language processing, cognitive science, and elements of neuroscience. It seeks to better understand perception and cognition with a view to enabling human-intelligible machine intelligence through learning structured and interpretable representations of perceptual data.
