I am Professor in Computational Logic in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence research theme and the leader of the CLArg (Computational Logic and Argumentation) research group. I am also a member and co-leader of the AI@Imperial Network of Excellence.  

For summaries of my recent and current research, see my inaugural talk (also available live), my invited tutorial at KR2016, my invited presentation at the University of Toulouse Decision Making Workshop, 24-26 April 2017, and my invited presentation at LPNMR 2017.
