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 Socio-Technical 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. 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.
