I am an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) of Computer Science in the Agents, Interaction and Complexity (AIC) research group in the Department of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton, and a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Twente.
I received my PhD from the University of Twente on the application of multiagent techniques for implementing circular economy practices (2015 - 2019) and did my Master in Artificial Intelligence at Utrecht University (2013 - 2015). I also hold a Master degree in Business Administration (MBA) from University of Greenwich in a joint program with Saxion UAS (2011 - 2012).
A list of my publications is available at ORCID, DBLP, and Google Scholar.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.
You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
My focus is on intelligent agent technologies, decision support concepts, and formal methods for multiagent systems. In particular, modeling the behavior of multiagent systems and logical frameworks to represent and reason about decision processes in multiagent settings. The following points characterize my general research interests:
- Agent-based computing
- Logics for multiagent systems
- Strategic decision making and game theoretic approaches
- Temporal representation and reasoning
- Virtual organizations/institutions
- Group responsibility and related socio-technical concepts
- Co-Investigator at ARGOS (AI-assisted Resilience Governance Systems)
- Research Fellow at AutoTrust (Human Centered Internet of Vehicles)
- Research Fellow at TAS Hub (UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub)
- Research Collaborator at CCAIS (Citizen-Centric AI Systems)
- PhD Researcher at SHAREBOX (Innovative Technologies for Circular Economy)
From July to October 2019, I was an academic visitor at Imperial College London, visiting Prof. Nick Jennings.
