Current research interests: AI for sustainability and governance; Recommendation Systems; Human-AI collaboration; Responsible AI; Simulation Intelligence and Digital Twins.
I am looking for
PhD students to join work on these topics through the Foundational AI CDT, if you are interested please send me an email with an introduction, your CV and a short research proposal.
I am currently working on bringing
sustainability and responsible innovation to the computer science arena. I am co-director of the first
MSc program on AI for Sustainable Development, as well as module leader of two courses at UCL: i) AI for Sustainable Development and ii) Transparent, Accountable and Responsible AI.
I work in what I call
planet-centered AI, developing responsible AI technologies for people, the planet and the
challenges of the human-led era of the Anthropocene (e.g. need for solutions for climate change mitigation & adaptation and supporting policy makers). So far, my contributions on the development and real-world deployment of these technologies have had impact in areas as diverse as biomedicine, environmental sustainability and educational technology.
I am interested in questions such as: How can we leverage AI to faithfully capture
the dynamics of our social and environmental ecosystems, creating
digital twins? How could we leverage these computational systems for
governance? How to make AI more
responsible, ethical, robust, transparent, accountable…? How do we create
a new hybrid collaborative and interactive intelligence, that is neither artificial nor human, but rather a mix of both of our strengths?
