Neil Yorke-Smith directs the STAR Lab at TU Delft. His research addresses a fundamental question of the AI era: how can technology help people make decisions in complex socio-technical situations? Yorke-Smith is an Associate Professor of Socio-Technical Algorithmics in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS/EWI), Delft University of Technology.

Research interests

My research aims to help people make decisions in complex socio-technical situations.  My current interests create and leverage data-driven optimisation, agent-based modelling, and social simulation to address real-world applications.
