Research Overview

My research interests span the specification, design and implementation of autonomous intelligent systems. A key theme of this work is `safe AI', specifically ensuring that autonomous intelligent systems function safely and in accordance with their design objectives. The current focus of my research is ensuring the safe behaviour of autonomous systems that adapt or learn at run time.

I have also worked on a wide range of artificial intelligence research problems, including belief revision, reasoning, search and agent-based simulation.
