I am a AI Research Lead at J.P.Morgan Chase & Co, London, UK.
My Research at J.P.Morgan involves the use of AI for Software Engineering.

I have received my PhD from the Department of Computer Science, at University College London.
During my PhD I worked on Predictive Models for Software Analysis and Search-Based Software Engineering, with a focus on Software Effort Estimation and Agile Methods.
