I'm looking at using artificial intelligence to personalise medication schedules.

Most medication is prescribed in a way that allows the patient to follow a standard routine. This is done in order to help the patient stay compliant and at the same time to consume the medication in a way that does not endanger the patient.

One proposed idea is ‘personalized medicines’, which is defined by the as providing “the right patient with the right drug at the right dose at the right time”. Researchers in the US have also produced a drug dosage printer to ‘print’ drugs with accurately specific doses and they believe this will reduce non-adherence, since the incorrect consumption of medication is one of the largest problems in healthcare.

I'm looking into using hybrid AI planning to give patients who consume medication the ability to schedule not only their medication to suit their daily schedule but help them plan other activities as well. I'm currently pusuing a PhD exploring this problem, supervised by Dr. Andrew Coles.

If you think what I'm doing is cool, you should check out what the folks in my research group are doing!

I've worked in companies of all sizes and led teams that proved to be a great success. I started my own companies, and learned from all my mistakes.

I'm an experienced software developer and data analyst. I've written in a multitude of programming languages and can pick up new frameworks very quickly. Nowadays, I mainly dabble in Python and full-stack JavaScript.

I can adapt to different environments depending on where I'm placed or what responsibilities I'm given.

At the moment, I work as a part-time data scientist at an awesome start-up called CopoFi.


In my free time I share, I read, I design, I gym, and I game.

I'm very passionate about teaching, and you've probably met me by hearing me speak at an awesome event. I love sharing my knowledge, so do send any opportunities my way.

I'm a big fan of fantasy fiction, and an avid reader of the genre. Rick Riordian and Brandon Sanderson are my two favourite authors.

I also mix my love for art with code when I'm designing websites or creating digital art. Interesting fact: web design is what originally introduced me to computer programming and software development.

Also, I spend more time on my Nintendo Switch that I'd like to admit.

I'll get back to you shortly.

If I don't, it's probably because I'm swarmed with email, but it's faster to catch me on Twitter.
