Research

My research interests lie in computational models of argument and dialogue, including but not limited to: argument dynamics and their use as a strategic tool in dialogue; extraction and analysis of dialogue structures; implementations of argumentation systems, such as ASPIC+.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Centre for Argument Technology (ARG-tech) at the University of Dundee, employed on the 3-year EU Horizon 2020-funded Council of Coaches project.

Previously, as part of my PhD research, I specified a model for Argument Revision for the ASPIC+ framework. I also developed TOAST, an implementation of the ASPIC+ framework, that is used by argumentation researchers worldwide.

I am also actively involved in the development of ArguBlogging and argugrader.
