I am Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science at University College London (UCL). I am a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK National Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. I am the Turing University Lead for UCL, i.e., I coordinate and support the research activities involving UCL and the Turing. I am also Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Bologna. I lead the Intelligent Social Systems Lab. We are part of the Autonomous Systems Research Group at UCL.

Research Interests

I have broad research interests spanning several traditional and emerging areas of Computer Science and beyond. More specifically, current research areas of interest include:

  • Machine Learning/Reinforcement Learning and their applications;
  • Computational models (in particular, learning models) of human/user/machine behaviour;
  • Machine intelligence for ubiquitous and mobile systems, cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things.

Application areas include networked systems, autonomous systems, human-AI interaction, digital health and security&privacy.
