  • Reader in Data Science
  • Dept of Geography
  • Faculty of S&HS

I am a Reader in Data Science at the Department of Geography at University College London, where I lead the Intelligent Social System Lab. I received a PhD in Computer Science from University College London and a Laurea (roughly comparable to a 5-year MSci) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna. I joined UCL in June 2015. I am also a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK National Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Before joining UCL, I was a Reader (Senior Lecturer until February 2014) at the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. From November 2009 to August 2011 I was a SICSA Lecturer at the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. Before that, I worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, USA (where I was ISTS Fellow) and at the University of Cambridge. 

Research Summary

At UCL, I lead the Intelligent Social Systems Lab. The focus of the work of my lab is on the design of next-generation intelligent systems based on computational models of human behaviour and social dynamics. I am interested in both theoretical and systems-oriented aspects. In other words, I enjoy investigating theoretical foundations and models, and then using them in a variety of applications, including the development of real-world systems.
Current areas of interest include:
Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning for mobile and ubiquitous systems;
Reinforcement Learning and its applications;
Computational and mathematical models of human behaviour and social systems (using mobile data, sensor and Internet of Things data, social media and other user-generated content, etc.) and their applications;
Machine Learning techniques applied to personal data (in particular data from mobile devices and social media) and its privacy implications.

Teaching Summary

I am the Director of the Master in Geospatial Analysis. I teach modules on data science and applied machine learning.
