I am a PhD student in the Explainable AI (XAI) team. I started my PhD in September of 2018. I am primarily researching Reinforcement Learning (RL) and Explainable AI (XAI). My plan is to eventually move to fuse these lines of research and investigate optimal methods of explaining RL algorithms (XRL). Ideally, I will show the efficiency in real or realistic scenarios. 

Apart from the above research, I have worked with Business Intelligence, database management, Information Analysis, software development and web development. Most of this experience is within the Healthcare sector. I would be happy to work with or advise on these subject as well.
