I received the MEng and PhD degrees in Computing from Imperial College London, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. I was a research assistant at the Intelligent Systems and Networks Section, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London between 2001 and 2006. I have been lecturer at the Computer Science subject group, Aston University, in Birmingham since 2006.
My research interests include multi-agent systems, particularly modeling of complex systems using agent-based methodologies.

In most complex systems there is a mechanism that maps simple local rules to the macroscopic behaviour of these systems. We use agent-based modelling and simulation to investigate the following questions that arise from this fact:
Keywords: multi-agent systems, agent-based modelling, biologically-inspired systems, decision-making, mechanism design, methodological advancement of agent-based modelling.
I am always looking for well-qualified students who are interested in multi-agent systems research. Students with strong backgrounds in computing, engineering, mathematics or economics and excellent communication skills are encouraged to email me with a statement of interest and CV.
