I am a lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. My research interest lies in the context of multiagent systems to facilitate human reasoning and decision-making under uncertainty. I am interested in models of argumentation-based reasoning and dialogue to handle conflicting and uncertain information. My research spans across different areas such as normative reasoning and planning, deliberation, evidential reasoning, provenance and crowdsourcing. In particular, I recently focussed on applications including intelligence analysis, social media and the built environment.
I have joined the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in 2016.I also hold an Honorary Fellow position at the University of Aberdeen and I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Previously I was a Research Fellow in the Agent, Reasoning and Knowledge group in the Computing Science Department at the University of Aberdeen, UK. My research was in the context of the projects: Managing Inferential Risk in the Use of Social Media Data within the ESRC Social Media - Developing Understanding, Infrastructure & Engagement and Collaborative Intelligence Analysis within the US UK International Technology Alliance in Network and Information Sciences. I was awarded my PhD in Computing Science by the University of Aberdeen, jointly funded by dot.rural RCUK Digital Economy Research, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, and the US UK International Technology Alliance. Prior to my PhD, I have obtained my MSc and BSc in Computer Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy.
