I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Computer Science at Aston University in Birmingham, England. My research is concerned with adaptation, online learning and self-organisation in complex agent-based systems. I am a member of the Aston Lab for Intelligent Collectives Engineering (ALICE).

I am particularly interested in biological, social and economic inspired techniques, decentralisation, heterogeneity and self-awareness. I have developed generic concepts, architectures and algorithms, as well as those for complex computing systems such as distributed smart camera networks, hypermusic ensembles, FPGAs and cloud federations.

Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the Centre of Excellence for Research in Computational Intelligence and Applications (CERCIA) in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Birmingham, on the topic of Evolutionary Market-Based Resource Allocation in Decentralised Computational Systems, and under the supervision of Professor Xin Yao and Dr. Paul Marrow at BT. I also hold an MSc in Natural Computation from the University of Birmingham, and before that, I read for a BSc in Computer Science at the University of Leicester.
