Introduction / Motivation

I'm currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the UoE Robust Autonomy and Decisions Group (RAD) with Subramanian Ramamoorthy. I'm interested in safety guarantees and risk assessment of Robotic-AI. In particular - how can we combine traditional models of symbolic-logic and formal verification, with newer black-box probabilistic models seen in modern complex machine learning systems?

I did my PhD at the Edinburgh Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC), which was all about the semantics of unawarness (or "unknown unknowns"). You can read it here if you like.

In my spare time I like to design small games. You can find a list of them on my Itch.io page. If you're interested in making games, I suggest using Unity, or GameMaker , then joining a Game Jam to get inspired.
