My research is focused on Responsible Artificial Intelligence.

My research is focused on Responsible Artificial Intelligence. More specifically, I am looking at the computational methods, formalisms, and socio-technical practices we need to effectively audit, verify, and validate intelligent systems while ensuring their trustworthiness.

My research spans multiple fields; including AI ethics, KR, software development practices for AI, cognitive architectures, HRI, policymaking, and moral philosophy. In parallel to my research efforts, I am a member of AI policy initiatives; e.g. IEEE SA’ P7001 series, ISO JTC1/42, EU’s AI Alliance, and others.

Prior to joining Umeå University, I defended my doctoral dissertation at the University of Bath (UK) and held teaching and visiting research positions at Bath, Georgia Institute of Technology (USA), and University of Surrey (UK).

I am the course coordinator for the degree projects (dissertations) of the MSc in Computing Science, both 15 ECTS (5DV138) and 30 ECTS (5DV136), and for the Msc in Artificial Intelligence 15 ECTS (5DV215).

I am co-coordinating the ESLEC course given to our national-level graduate schools WASP and WASP-HS. 

Finally, I am teaching probabilistic reasoning and knowledge representation in the course "Artificial Intelligence: Methods and Applications (5DV063)."
