I am currently working on a research project jointly funded by Jaguar Land Rover and EPSRC in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, at the University of Sheffield. This project forms part of a £10 million innovation of simulation programme led by Jaguar Land Rover. I am the lead developer of an open-source integrated optimisation and decision-support system, Liger, and also conduct research on distributed multiobjective optimisation and interactive decision-making. I work closely with Jaguar Land Rover in the development of Liger.
Since the majority of my time has been spent on designing, implementing, and improving our software and managing our development infrastructure, I, happily and proudly, consider myself as a Research Software Engineer, though my title does not explicitly say so ;).
Before taking my current position, I received a PhD in Optimisation and Operational Research from the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Edinburgh in 2014. I received the Master’s degree in Operational Research with Computational Optimisation from the University of Edinburgh in 2010.
