I am a lecturer in the Computer Science group of Aston University, which I joined in 2010, having completed my PhD in Aston's Non-linearity and Complexity Research Group.

  • BSc Mathematics, 2006, University of Bristol
  • PhD Information Engineering, 2010, Aston University
  • PGCert Professional Practise in Higher Education, 2013, Aston University

I am the programme director of BSc Computer Software Development and co-director of BSc Business Information Systems.

Current modules:

  • CS1240 Internet Computing
  • CS2030 User Centred Group Project
  • CS3330 Image and Video Processing

Past modules:

  • CS2040 Multimedia Science

My main research interests are in swarm intelligence, swarm robotics and continuous optimization. I focus on developing novel algorithms for generating scalable, intelligent behaviour in swarms of very limited capacity, individuals on frameworks for complex task-allocation in spatially distributed swarms. I am also interested in how hetrogeneity and dynamics can be used to improve the design of collective systems.
