Summary

 

Summary

I am a research associate in the Computational Logic and Argumentation group. My research interests include 

  • Argumentation
  • Explainable AI
  • Hybrid AI/ Neuro-symbolic AI
  • Uncertain Reasoning
  • Inconsistency Tolerance
  • Knowledge Graphs
  • Applied Optimization
  • Algorithm engineering and analysis

Before joining Imperial in 2022, I had previous academic positions at

and spent research visits at

Since 2016, I gave more than 20 courses in the area of Artificial Intelligence. My teaching portfolio includes courses on

  • Artificial Intelligence (Introduction and Advanced),
  • Probabilistic Reasoning,
  • Nature-inspired Algorithms,
  • Multiagent Systems,
  • Knowledge Graphs,
  • Time Series Analysis and Forecasting.

Before studying Computer Science (2005-2010), I worked in Electronics (2000-2001) and Logistics (2001-2004). After finishing my MSc, I worked as a software engineer on Enterprise resource planning (2010-2011) before starting my PhD.
