Joar is a DPhil student at the Department of Computer Science, supervised by Professor Alessandro Abate.

His research is on machine learning, and how to make AI systems safe and reliable. His current thesis title is “Safe Reinforcement Learning”, but his broader interests include everything from cognitive science to formal epistemology. In the past he has done research in areas such as philosophical decision theory, constrained reinforcement learning, computational learning theory, inductive logic programming, and active learning with neural networks.

Before starting his DPhil he completed the BA and MCompPhil in Computer Science and Philosophy at Oxford, which he graduated from as top of the year.
