I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Dept. of Computer Science at University College London. Previously, I was Senior Research Fellow at the same department and Research Associate at the University of Cambridge.
I have worked in the last 12 years in topics related to biomedicine, sustainable agriculture, climate change and environmental modelling, neuroscience and educational technology. Nowadays I am interested in building the technical and responsibility foundations needed to address global sustainability challenges, specifically regarding environmental modelling and policy.
I am currently working on bringing sustainability and responsible innovation topics to the computer science arena. I am Deputy Director of the first MSc program on AI for Sustainable Development, as well as module leader of two courses at UCL: i) AI for Sustainable Development and ii) Transparent, Accountable and Responsible AI.
In 2022, I worked on creating the first conference on human-centered AI, and I am part of its steering committee now.
I sometimes write poems on tech and sustainability in my blog The AI has gone bananas.
Interests: responsible AI; environmental digital twinning; sustainable agritech; recommender systems and simulation intelligence for policy making; education for sustainability.
