(Quick link: publications)

I am a lecturer and researcher in the mathematically structured programming group of the department of computer & information sciences at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.

I am applying category theory to mathematical economics and artificial intelligence, with a view towards cybernetics as a unified perspective. I am known as the inventor of open games, which form a topic I call compositional game theory. I am motivated by questions like “How do people respond to incentives?” and “How does learning work?”

Other topics I am interested in include graphical calculi, constructive and linear logic, functional programming, and the semantics of natural language.

You can find an updated bibliography of all things related to compositional game theory here.

If you are coming to compositional game theory for the first time and want to know where to start, see my reading list.
