I started my research career in 1993 when I began my PhD. I took a year out in the middle to work as a research associate with Edinburgh university, and returned to complete my PhD on time.
Although I began working in unsupervised machine learning, I soon began a couple of RA positions on supervised learning — one, on learning within bounds, at the Engineering Maths Department in Bristol, and the other on a cutting-edge bioinformatics (metabolomics) project back at Aberystwyth.
Having been awarded a lectureship, I focussed Evolutionary Computation and in particular I was involved in Artificial Immune Systems, including helping set up the first ICARIS conference at Kent. I continued to work in EC and AIS until 2010, when I quit most of my academic work to set up my own business.
I have maintained links to two small research projects: one on a new type of clustering, and another on simulation in Law.
The areas in which I have published can be found in the list, right.
