I am a software engineer and researcher based in Melbourne, Australia. I am currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Melbourne where I'm a member of the Intelligent Agent Laboratory and funded by the Defence Science Institute. My supervisors are Adrian Pearce and Liz Sonenberg.

Research Interests

My research interests are in knowledge representation, reasoning and automated planning in the context mult-agent teams. In particular I am looking at ways in which teams of agents can synthesize plans collaboratively in a distributed manner.

I've previously been involved in the ROAD project at Swinburne University which focuses on adaptive software architecture and context awareness.
