I am a Researcher in AI

I have previously been a postdoc at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London and am currently working with Ericsson Research in Stockholm, Sweden.
I no longer regularly update or maintain this page.

At Imperial, I have worked on Explainable AI, using computational argumentation to design inherently interpretable models and methods that support transparent decision making in fields such as medical reasoning, legal informatics, mathematical optimisation.
I have managed researchers, enthusiastically supervised and taught students, collaborated internationally in interdisciplinary research, published and presented my work at top tier international conferences and journals, reviewed and assessed the works of others and given the highest quality feedback, organised research events, represented and spoke on behalf of my colleagues and fellow AI researchers during institutional and public engagement opportunities.

ECAI Paper

Data-Empowered Argumentation for Dialectically Explainable Predictions accepted for publication at ECAI, Europe's premier AI conference. (26.8% acceptance rate)


AI-assisted Schedule Explainer for Nurse Rostering demo paper accepted at AAMAS, premier multi-agent conference.


Explainable AI (XAI)

I am particularly interested in explainable reasoning using symbolic AI, working specifically on computational argumentation for making and explaining decisions using mined data, with applications to mathematical optimisation, clinical decision support, legal reasoning. XAI research currently spans across many of my activities.


EPSRC project: Resource Optimisation, Argumentation, Decision support and Knowledge Transfer to create Value via Learning Health Systems.
I apply computational argumentation methods to explainable reasoning with clinical guidelines and integration with optimisation.

Analysing the Passage of UK Parliament Bills

Project in collaboration with Thomson Reuters, Data Science Institute and Imperial College Business School. I have driven the development of both methodology and a working system to explain primary legislation outcomes.

Other activities

I have initiated Explainable AI seminar series at Imperial.
I engaged with UK policy-makers at The Forum: AI & Health on March 3.
I have participated at an Explainability Expert Roundtable discussion on Explainable AI, at The Alan Turing Institute.
I am a highly distinguished reviewer for two years in a row at IJCAI (2018 & 2019), a premier AI conference.
I appear in Imperial's Industry issue on Explainable AI.


I consider these the most important:
