Senior Lecturer

Research | Current

My main research interests are in the AI areas of machine learning and datamining.

In particular, I am interested in various techniques for machine learning (such as ensemble approaches, techniques which overcome overfitting problems, and data-engineering as incorporating background knowledge) and their applications to real world problems. In additon I have been working in the area of search, planning, and representation increasingly in the last few years.
