I am a member of the AI Group here at St Andrews.

I am also deputy director of CIRCA, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra.


My research is in decision-making and optimisation, with a particular focus on the formulation of effective models of problems for solving via combinatorial search. With colleagues I have developed a modelling pipeline of tools to automate this process - see here for an overview.

Here is a complete list of my publications.

See here if you are interested in some older work in flexible AI planning.


I am supervising the PhD studies of Saad Attieh, Gökberk Koçak and Patrick Spracklen.

I had the honour of supervising the PhD studies of Özgür Akgün, Andy Grayland, Bilal Hussain, Lars Kotthoff, Arunas Prokopas, Andrea Rendl, and James Wetter.
