Visitor, welcome to my homepage.

In April 2002, I joined the Department of Computer Science, University of Bath as lecturer, after completing my Doctor of Science degree at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium. I became a senior lecturer in 2010.

My main research interests focuss on knowledge representation and reasoning, with an emphasis on Answer Set Programming (ASP) I am interested in both theoretical and application-oriented challenges. With my collaborators, I am researching the relation between the theoretical model underpinning ASP and game theory, looking at software engineering and methodolgy aspects of the answer set programming and developing applications of ASP in the areas of compiler theory, music composition , policy design and verification and multi-agent systems .
Besides answer set programming, I am interesting in multi-agent systems, game theory, multi-agent models of wireless network protocols, web-services and norm-aware systems.
Outside computer science but related to it, I am also active in educational research with my main focus on computer science in higher education.

I am a course tutor for the Bath course for learning and teaching in higher education and a member of the standing committee of the division of life long learning. On departmental level, I am part of the recruitement team, with a particular focuss on outreach activities and overseas recruitement. As the editor, I take care of the department's technical report series. I also act as Special Personal Tutor for under 18's.

Students, I used to maintain an open-door policy. Unfortunately the move to an open plan office makes this impossible. I check my email very frequently so if you want to see me you can always email me. Alternatively ring my office number. You are most welcome to drop by for any reason, whether it is for discussing your study progress, difficulties you are experiences, the classes I teach or your project or just to tell me that everything is going well and you are having a great time on the course.
If you are interested in one the projects I have online for Bsc. or Msc. students or if you have your own idea, ask for an appointment as soon as possible so that we can discuss it and tailor it to your needs and interests.
