I am a third year Ph.D student under the supervisor of Daniel Kudenko. I am a part of the Reinforcement Learning (RL) research group, which itself is a part of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research group. I completed my undergraduate degree at the Univeristy of Durham graduating with a BSc (hons) in 2009 in Computer Science. Whilst I was an undergraduate I conducted a piece of undergraduate research under Dr. Shamus Smith thanks to a Nuffield Grant I was awarded (please see the papers section below for more details).
My primary research interest revolves around AI and more specifically learning. Spatial awareness, team co-ordination and team learning are the 3 areas within this that I hope to focus my attention on during my Ph.D.
Currently I am researching Tile-Coding in hopes to gain better understanding of the dynamics of learning in approximation and how this difers from learning without approximation.
