Biography

Within the Quantitative Analysis and Verification group I was a research assistant on the EU-funded CONNECT project, for which I developed compositional modelling formalisms and reasoning frameworks capable of abstracting asynchronously communicating component-based systems. This culminated in my doctoral thesis on the same topic, which was supervised by Professor Marta Kwiatkowska. Previously I studied for the degree of Master of Computer Science, again at Oxford, during which time I looked at decidability and complexity results for bisimilarity and similarity of alternating timed automata, along with Professor James Worrell. Whilst I have now left academia, I am happy to discuss aspects of my past work.
