Research

I have a broad set of research interests which all relate to examining agent interactions and decision making across a range of problem areas. While my research can be classified in the broader sense by Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering, a more specialized classification would include some of the following areas.
  • Multi-Agent Systems
  • Learning and Evolution
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Multi-Objective Optimisation & Multi-Agent Multi-Objective Optimisation
  • Real-Time Adaptive Event Decision Systems
  • Complex Adaptive Systems
  • Deep Learning
  • Data Analytics and Business Intelligence
  • System Dynamics & Simulation
  • Norms and Social Networks
  • Cloud Computing
  • Urban Analytics
  • Smart Cities
