Marco Perez Hernandez

I am Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies at the University of the West of England Bristol.

I have been part of the NGCDI programme, exploring agent-based supervisory control architectures for the management of critical digital infrastructures. I started in NGCDI when I was Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) at the University of Cambridge , working with Prof. Ajith Parlikad and Prof. Duncan McFarlane.

I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Leicester as part of the team of Prof. Stephan Reiff-Marganiec, I studied autonomy and self-adaptation in systems of smart objects and how to realise these behaviours through middleware architectures.

I study and design distributed intelligent systems. I analyse the dynamics of complex networks of agents, design strategies, algorithms and protocols for collective system learning and self-organisation. Most of my research work is applied to Internet of Things (IoT) environments, where intelligent agents are embodied in cyber-physical devices.
