I am a University Academic Fellow (~Assistant Professor) at the University of Leeds working with the School of Computing and Leeds University Business School on applications of artificial intelligence in financial services. I am also the chair of the IEEE Taskforce on Large-Scale Global Optimization. Prior to joining the University of Leeds, I was a research fellow at the School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, and a member of Centre of Excellence for Research in Computational Intelligence and Applications (CERCIA). I completed my PhD in computer science with the Evolutionary Computing and Machine Learning (ECML) group at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. I also hold a bachelor in applied mathematics and a bachelor in computer science with first class honours from RMIT University. My research interests are: large-scale global optimization, decomposition methods for optimization, multi-objective optimization, and machine learning.
