Tony joined CMP as a part time MRes student/part time teaching assistant in 1993 having finished his BSc in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Hertfordshire. After completing his Masters by research in 1995 he began a PhD titled "Modelling the UK electricity market with autonomous adaptive agents". After a brief period as a research assistant on a data mining project sponsored by Master Foods and Centrica, in 1999 he completed his PhD and was appointed as a Lecturer in Statistics for Data Mining jointly in the schools of Computer Science and Mathematics. In 2003 statistics moved into CMP and since then Tony has been a full member of the school. In 2007 he was promoted to senior lecturer.

Tony has been involved in researching areas of optimization, machine learning, agent systems, statistics and data mining. Currently he is primarily focused on time series data mining. He is involved in several ongoing projects, links to which can be found below:

PhD Projects 

Dr. Bagnall would welcome applications from students who have secured their own funding who wish to work in any areas of time series data mining. Specifically, Dr. Bagnall has projects available in Time Series Classification and is looking for people to work on image outline classification and with environmental datasets, but he will consider proposals in related areas such as time clustering, regression and rule induction and other problem domains.

If you would like to discuss research projects in more detail, please contact Dr. Bagnall directly (
