My research interests are mainly in adaptive systems, both artificial and biological. They include the following: the development of artificial nervous systems for robots, with emphasis on visually guided robots acting in the real world -- in particular, the development of biologically inspired behaviour generating neural networks, including those incorporating virtual diffusable neuro-modulators; evolutionary robotics; insect-inspired navigation; artificial life; evolutionary and other stochastic search algorithms; computational neuroscience; adaptive systems in the visual arts and in music; history and philosophy of AI and Cybernetics; machine learning. For more details follows the links to publications and research.

I am co-founder of The Sussex Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (CCNR) , an interdisciplinary centre set up in collaboration with The School of Life Sciences.

I am a founding member of the Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems group  (now the AI Group) in The Department of Informatics.
