I am a lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at Cardiff University. I am broadly interested in scientific study of laws of thought, mathematical models to wicked problems and social computing paradigms. I specialize in machine learning and logic, particularly in Bayesian machine learning, non-classical logic and argumentation. I have diverse educational background and work experience in universities, a national institute and R&D in an industry.
