Research

I am currently a PhD Fellow at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Computer Science under the supervision of Assistant Professor Tijs Slaats. My research is part of the Hybrid Business Process Management Technologies project, funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research.

For more information and a list of publications, see my university profile and Orcid record.

Source code for software I've developed in connection with my research can be found at www.github.com/backco. This includes:

  • qmpm: a framework for evaluating process models against event logs
  • eventropy: a set of entropy estimators for event logs
  • logtrie: a fast prefix tree data structure for event logs and other sequential data

Education

I hold a Master of Science degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics. My dissertation, "Modelling Strategic Negotiation Behaviour in Colored Trails", focused on predicting human negotiation behavior by training machine learning algorithms on real data sets preprocessed using domain knowledge from psychological research. I was supervised by Associate Professor Michael Rovatsos, head of the Agents Group and former Director of the Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications.

I hold two bachelor degrees. The first in Psychology (with a focus on AI, HCI and Computer Science) from Lewis & Clark College. The second is in Applied Arts from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Glass and Ceramics.

I've also completed one semester of supplementary coursework in mathematics (final year undergraduate level) with top results at Roskilde University.
