Dr Adam Stanton

Adaptive Informatics


I am Lecturer in Computer Science, in the School of Informatics and Digital Engineering at Aston University.


Previously I was Lecturer in the School of Computing and Mathematics at Keele University. I teach or have taught courses in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Operating Systems, Java, C++, Physics Simulation, 3D Graphics, Computational Intelligence, Cybercrime, Fundamentals of Computing, Virtual Worlds, Computer Animation and Multimedia, and Web Technology.

My research work is concerned with finding new methods to produce machines that exhibit adaptive behaviour in 3D physical simulations, generally by the careful design of environments, neural networks and evolutionary systems.

At undergraduate level I studied for a degree in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science from the University of Birmingham, where my interested in natural computation, nature-inspired design and intelligent behaviour was kindled. After that I gained a doctorate in Evolutionary Robotics and Artificial Life from the University of Keele.
