Research and Development

I am interested in the research and engineering of artificial intelligence subsystems for reasoning and problem solving. Particularly I am passionate about AI for Education. And  Currently I am researching and developing innovative AI-based games and tools for teaching and learning music.

Previously, my PhD research focused on the design and implementation of an AI reasoner over dynamic information and communication in a peer-to-peer gossip scenario. You can find a copy of my PhD thesis here.

Also previously in my Masters degree project I designed and implemented an artificial intelligence system that solves logic puzzles. You can find my Masters degree dissertation here, and you can find the  solver (VisualDel Tool) here.

Here is my Curriculum Vitae.  To download some of my software please go to my Github page. Please note that my most recent works are deliberately not currently included in my CV and on my Github page. If you would like to know more about my most recent works please contact me directly.
