Ron Petrick's Webpages

Welcome to my webpages!

I am currently an Associate Professor in the School of Mathematical & Computer Sciences and the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics at Heriot-Watt University. I am also an Honorary Fellow in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.


My research is centred around automated planning, knowledge representation and reasoning, and cognitive robotics.


I am currently the Programme Director for the MSc Artificial Intelligence (1 Year) and MSc Artificial Intelligence (2 Year) programmes in the Department of Computer Science at Heriot-Watt's Edinburgh Campus.

This academic year, I am one of the lecturers for F29AI - Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents and F29SO - Software Engineering in Edinburgh. I am also the Coordinator for the 3rd Year Computer Science Group Project at the Edinburgh Campus.

Additional information about my teaching and honours/MSc project supervision can be found on my teaching page (coming soon).
