About me

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 completed my Master's in Artificial Intelligence at Utrecht University (2013–2015). I also hold a Master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Greenwich in a joint program with Saxion UAS (2011–2012).

A list of publications is available at ORCID, DBLP, and Google Scholar.



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:
