I started reading for my PhD in July 2017 after receiving an EPSRC-funded studentship position at Aston University in the UK, where I am also part of the Aston Lab for Intelligent Collectives Engineering (ALICE) group; my supervisors are Dr. Peter R. Lewis and Dr. Anikó Ekárt. During the first month of postgraduate life, I graduated with a First Class BSc Hons in Computer Science from the same institution; I was awarded both the Simpson Memorial Prize for achieving the highest grades during second year, and the prize for the highest-achieving female in final year.
I’ve always had an inquisitive mind and a driving enthusiasm to learn and discover. Studying Computational Intelligence during my undergraduate degree was an opportunity to be both creative and curious – both of which I get to be every day during my PhD studies.
My current research interests are inspired by the fields of human psychology, biology and sociology in the realm of computational intelligence, and are directed towards that of computational self-awareness, neuroevolution, and interference within evolutionary multi-agent systems.
