Alexandra is an associate professor in Digital Manufacturing and is leading the Manufacturing Analytics Research Group within the Department of Engineering at Cambridge. She is a fellow of Darwin College. Her research focusses on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Manufacturing and Supply Chains. Alexandra's main research interests include:

  • Development of autonomous and scalable distributed decision making technologies, particularly with nature-inspired algorithms and Multi-agent Systems
  • Predictive Data Analytics, especially for predicting and handling uncertainty in supply chains and other emergent manufacturing systems
  • Identification of emergent patterns in industrial systems, particularly in relation to robustness, resilience and quality outcomes
