Research

My research is within Artificial Intelligence and has the following main aspects:
  1. understanding (and generating) metaphorical utterances
  2. representing and reasoning about mental states of agents
The work mainly uses symbolic AI techniques.
See the separate ATT-Meta project and Gen-Meta project pages.

Selected Publications


Metaphor-of-Mind Databank

I have been building a databank of examples of metaphors of mind in real text and speech.
This databank is a product of the ATT-Meta project.


Opportunities for Projects: PhD, MSc and Undergraduate

I would welcome additional MSc and PhD students. I can offer several types of project, mainly in various areas of Artificial Intelligence.
