Office hours (2023/24 term 2):

Research interests: My main research area is Artificial Intelligence. I am interested
in building complex learning systems where humans and agents have to either:
(i) collaborate to deal with complex real-world problems; or (ii) to strategically act against each other. Given this, I mainly focus on the following topics: online learning/decision making, game theory, incentive engineering, multi-agent systems, and their applications to AI for Social Good.

PhD studentships, internships

Prospective students: I am always looking for bright students with strong maths/stats/CS background. If you want to do a PhD with me then I would expect you to contact me by Sept/Oct. If your enquiries/research topic proposal are inline with my research, I will very likely respond to your email.

Warwick students: If you would like to do an internship with me, the best way to do is through the URSS schemeLink opens in a new window.
