I am a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

Before taking up this position I was a Marie Curie Fellow at INRIA Paris-Saclay France, a Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin, a Visiting Researcher in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Essex University, a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Complex and Adaptive System Laboratory at University College Dublin and a Ph.D. Student in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Essex University.

I am interested in Evolutionary Algorithms and Monte Carlo Tree Search. A brief description of my research can be found here and my publication list can be seen here and also through Google Scholar.
