I am a PhD Graduate from the MathSys CDT. I passed my viva on January 2021. I am currently based in the Alan Turing Institute in the British Library (London). Normally, I can be found in the first floor.
My PhD project is centred around transportation systems modelling, prediction and control, using a variety of tools to create novel applications of machine learning and time series analysis. Currently I make myself busy trying to put little brains inside traffic lights and teaching them to optimise vehicular and pedestrian flow using Reinforcement Learning.
Recent and Current Projects
- Industrial Internship with Vivacity Labs. Looking into Reward Function for Reinforcement Learning agents for Urban Traffic Control.
- Internship at the Alan Turing Institute. Optimising flow within mobility systems with AI (Reinforcement Learning), in a collaboration with the Toyota Mobility Foundation. Working with Sir Alan Wilson (UCL, ATI), Neil Walton (Manchester) and Damon Wischik (Cambridge).
- PhD on Traffic Management and Prediction with Dr Colm Connaughton. The project is a continuation of the Research Group Project. Initially we are focusing on the limitations of forecasting based on profiling time series. Next steps will involve Shockwave Absorption, Data Assimilation and Fluid Dynamics models.
Research Group Project with Ayman Boustati, Peter De Ford, Laura Guzman and Guillem Mosquera on Intelligent Mobility Applications for the UK Strategic Road Network. This project is in collaboration with the THALES Group and is under the supervision of Dr Colm Connaughton.
- MSc Project on Simulation Optimisation with Simulated Annealing. In collaboration with Lanner and under the supervision of Dr Robin Ball and Dr Juergen Branke.
- Research project on sociophysics titled The Rise of Collaboration: Convergence in Social Networks with Directed Punishment with Samuel Johnson.
- Smart Sustainable Cities project with Siemens Traffic in the Alan Turing Institute, London. It involved deploying independent Q-Learning Agents in each intersection of the Coventry city centre road map.
