Other Information

I am Professor in Computational Logic in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where I am a member of the Logic and Artificial Intelligence research section and the leader of the CLArg (Computational Logic and Argumentation) research group. 

See my invited presentation at DGL2015 (Eighth Workshop in Decisions, Games and Logic, 17-19 June 2015, the London School of Economics, UK), my inaugural talk (also available as a live) and my invited tutorial at KR2016 for summaries of my recent and current research.

I was a partner of the desMOLD EU project (2012-2015) and the sole investigator of the EPSRC project TRaDAr (2012-2016).

I am a member of the steering committe of AT, the Executive Committee of the Board of ALP, the Association for Logic Programming, corner editor on Argumentation for the Journal of Logic and Computation , and in the editorial board of the Argument and Computation journal.
