"I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself."

Academic Biography

Graduated from Reading University, UK, with double First class honours in Mathematics and Physics and completed her doctorate in Number Theory at the University of Cambridge <genealogy: here>. She has worked at the University of Nottingham; the Institute for Advanced Study Princeton, New Jersey; Colorado University, Boulder, Colorado; Royal Holloway College, University of London; Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois; Brunel University, West London; Imperial College, University of London, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces and is now Professor Emerita of Neural and Evolutionary Computing in the School of Computer Science, Cardiff University, Wales.

Her papers cover such subjects as Number Theory and Diophantine Approximation, Diophantine Equations, Computer Aided Instruction, Neural Nets and Genetic Algorithms, and applications of Neural Computing and Genetic Algorithms to Control Theory, the Analysis Control and Synchronization of Chaotic Systems, Signal Processing and Speech Recognition. She has written several books on Game Theory and Computing, is a Fellow of the British Computer Society (FBCS), a Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP), a Senior Member of IEEE, a Life Fellow of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (FCPS), and is on the Editorial Boards of Neural Computing & Applications and Computational Management Science.

She started her professional career as a pure mathematician and became progressively interested in Computing, especially machine learning, neural computing, and massively parallel genetic algorithms. More recently she has been working on the control and synchronisation of chaotic dynamical systems with particular reference to neural chaos. In the early 1980's she published a number of books and articles on home computing and was Series Editor for Ellis Horwood's series in Home Computing. She also ran her own software company (Ridge Systems).

At Brunel she managed a project on Computer Aided Instruction and jointly managed a research initiative funded by British Telecom Research Laboratories in applications of neural net models to speech recognition.

She has helped to prepare AI and Neural Net courses for Control Data Corporation and Bellcore, acted as consultant in advanced computing techniques for a number of major companies, has been an invited visitor to GMD, Cologne, Germany, New Mexico State University, the Oregon Graduate Institute, Weizmann Institute, Israel, Coppe Sistemas, UF Rio de Janeiro, and has a continuing research relationship with Laboratório de Inteligência Computacional, So Carlos-USP, Brazil.

Her main professional interests are massively parallel models of computation, connectionist architectures, algorithms for the extraction of noise applied to the prediction and control of chaotic dynamics, analysis of probabilistic algorithms for hard combinatoric search, and learning algorithms with particular reference to speech recognition and signal processing. Recently she has been particularly interested in very high security cryptography. She also has a mild ongoing interest in applications of AI to Computer Aided Instruction.

NEWSFLASH: Reading University to close Physics Department Press Release: Degrees in "Underwater Basket Weaving" now available from Reading University's newly opened 'Department for Interllectutually Incompotant Students' funded by a special initiative from Tony Blur's government in conjunction with Dunkin-Donuts. First class will be 'How to hold your breath'. The white heat of British tertiary education takes a giant leap backwards whilst ministers assert on national television that "since 110% of all students now pass all exams this is clear proof that education has vastly improved under New Labour". As Tony Bliar (sic) said enthusiastically with a winning smile "Education, education, education. Britain now leads the way in Under Water Basket Weaving and Media Studies." <Delightfully illiterate petition here>

15 February 2007: In a bid to speed up the dissemination of scientific discoveries, the European Commission said Thursday it plans to shake up the old-fashioned world of scientific publishing by throwing its weight behind a move to make scientific research results freely available on the Internet.  <Sign up here> (The link has been down sometimes).
