Areas of expertise For more than 10 years I have been engaged in academic and industrial research of Complex Adaptive Systems, including:

(1) Automated Trading, Auctions and Financial Systems: I am interested in the dynamics of financial markets, the behaviour of traders, automated trading algorithms and the interactions between humans and automated traders in different financial markets.

(2) Cloud Computing: I develop simulation software to model the very large scale data centres that are used to provide cloud computing services. These simulation tools can be used to improve efficiency, resiliency and costs of cloud computing.

(3) Evolutionary Computation: A branch of Artificial Intelligence that simulates the process of Darwinian evolution on (multiple) populations of artificial agents to automate the design and problem solving process. I have invented new techniques that alter the dynamics between evolving populations in order to improve the ability of computers to design, optimise, and problem solve.
