About Me

I'm a PhD researcher in Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the University of Warwick, originally from Liverpool. My research is generously funded by the Feuer International Scholarship in Artificial Intelligence , and my supervisor is Prof. Hakan Ferhatosmanoglu. Before beginning my PhD in October 2020, I graduated with an MEng in Computer Science, also at Warwick.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the saxophone in various bands, both at Warwick and elsewhere.


My research interests are centred around cloud-based AI systems. I am exploring the application of serverless computing to a variety of AI-based workloads. In particular, I am interested in highly scalable and cost-effective implementations of low-level kernel operations which underpin much of AI and ML. I am also researching novel graph neural network-based approaches for spatio-temporal forecasting, particularly in the context of road networks (in collaboration with Transport for the West Midlands and other industrial partners).
