Research interests

My research aims to help people make decisions in complex socio-technical situations.  My current interests leverage agent-based modelling, constraint-based scheduling, machine learning and data analytics, and social simulation to address real-world applications.

Brief biography

Neil Yorke-Smith is an Associate Professor of Algorithmics in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). His research focuses on intelligent decision making in complex socio-technical situations, with a particular interest in agent-based methodologies and behavioural factors in automated planning and scheduling. Dr Yorke-Smith has been a Visiting Scholar at St Edmund's College, Cambridge and at the Center for the Study of Language and Information, Stanford University, and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Cambridge Judge Business School and at RMIT University. Previously, Dr Yorke-Smith was a faculty member at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon; before that he was a Research Scientist at SRI International, USA and lectured at Stanford University. Dr Yorke-Smith has consulted in Silicon Valley, Europe, and the Middle East. He holds a doctorate degree from Imperial College London, where his thesis research focused on handling uncertainty in business and engineering applications of constraint-based reasoning.
