About Me

I am Professor of Data Science at the Department of Geography at University College London, where I lead the Intelligent Social Systems Lab.

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 am also Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Bologna.

At UCL I am Deputy Director of the Leverhulme Doctoral Training Programme for the Ecological Study of the Brain and the Director of the UCL Master in Social and Geographic Data Science.

Research Interests

Current areas of interest include:

  • Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning for ubiquitous and autonomous systems, with a focus on the algorithmic and theoretical aspects;
  • Autonomous and intelligent systems with human(s)-in-the-loop;
  • Reinforcement Learning and multi-agent systems;
  • Computational models of human behaviour and its applications;
  • Computational social science, with a focus on applications of machine learning to behavioural data (such as mobile data, sensor and Internet of Things data, social media and other user-generated content, etc.) and computational and mathematical models of human behaviour and social systems (and their applications).
