This page is out of date, as I left Imperial in December 2014.

I am involved in research on highly dynamic, self-adaptive software systems comprising: behaviour synthesis from abstract goals; declarative, decentralised assembly of software architecture; and more recently machine learning techniques for overcoming the limitations of design-time knowledge. Such research has found application in pervasive, military and robotic domains. I undertook my doctorate at Imperial College and have since spent time at INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt.

If necessary, my email address can be purloined from a paper or from the department.
