I am currently an associate professor with the School of Computer Science and Engineering at The University of New South Wales.

Research Interests

My Ph.D. dissertation is entitled The Role of Abductive Reasoning within the Process of Belief Revision (click on this link to view the abstract and, if you wish, download a gzip'ed postscript version). It deals mainly with the belief revision framework developed by Alchourrón, Gärdenfors and Makinson (AGM) and uses this theory to investigate various abductive belief revision operators. My broader research interests involve general approaches to belief revision and to reasoning about actions, including computational aspects, and approaches to abduction/explanation and their applications. I am also interested in the areas of theory revision and scientific theory formation.

My main research interests lie in:
