Patrick O'Hara

I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Warwick supervised by Prof Theo Damoulas and Dr Ramanujan Sridharan. I am an active member of the Warwick Machine Learning Group.

My research interests lie in the intersection of graph theory and machine learning. Specific interests include graph kernels, branch & cut algorithms, routing problems, parameterized algorithms and reinforcement learning.

Prior to starting my PhD, I was a research assistant working at The Alan Turing Institute (2019-2020) and the University of Warwick (2018-2019). Projects I was working on include the London Air Quality Project and Project Odysseus. From 2015-2018, I completed my BSc in Computer Science at the University of Warwick.
