I am a lecturer (~assistant professor) in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at Cardiff University. Prior to this, I completed a European Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship. During the outgoing phase of this fellowship I worked at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) while during the incoming phase I worked at University College Dublin (UCD).

Broadly speaking my research focuses on solving spatial problems. I am particularly interested in applications to the domains of geographical information science and robotics. For more information see my publications page.
