Mauro Vallati
Professor of Artificial Intelligence
University of Huddersfield


I am a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow, ACM Senior Member, ACM Distinguished speaker on AI for the UK, Full Professor at the School of Computing and Engineering of the University of Huddersfield, and Director of the Research Centre on Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.

I received my PhD in March 2012 from the University of Brescia. After my PhD, I worked at the planning group of the University of Brescia, as a postdoctoral research fellow, till September 2012. In October 2012 I moved to the University of Huddersfield, where I served as a Research Fellow till April 2016, and then as a Senior Lecturer and eventually Reader till August 2022.

My main research interests are in Artificial Intelligence Planning and Argumentation. In particular I am interested in the application of AI Planning techniques to Urban Traffic and Mobility (this is also the topic of my Fellowship). I am also interested in the field of innovative applications of AI in Medicine.
