About Me

Hello, I’m Alex!

I’m a 3rd year PhD student at City, University of London, working in the CitAI Research Centre.

My thesis is provisionally titled: A Cognitively Inspired Architecture for Conversational Agents. I mainly focus on improving conversational agents through the addition of components inspired by semantic and episodic memory, emotion, working memory, and learning from experience.

As a result of my research I have also worked with topics such as Large Language Models, Natural Language Processing, and Knowledge Graph Embeddings.
