Associate Professor in Computer Science
I'm an Associate Professor of Computer Science research in the School of Computer Science, part of the Faculty of Technology. My duties include teaching programming, statistics, computer science, data mining and research methods to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
My research interests include the investigation of machine learning techniques for detecting anomalous patterns for knowledge discovery. Anomaly detection can reveal interesting patterns that are on the boundary between noise and useful discoveries. I also perform data analysis of medical and biostatistical information and constructing statistical models for prediction and interpretation. I work with medical professionals in the NHS and with staff in Health Sciences.
My other interests include drug repositioning using chemical similarity, drug side-effects, protein on and off targets - again using computational methods such as complex network theory, clustering and inferential statistics.
Teaching and supervision
- Data Science Fundamentals
- Technology Management for Organisations
- Business Analytics
Research interests for potential research students
Potential topics for PhD (computer based):
I'm open to discussions with prospective students which include machine learning and data mining techniques:
- Modifications to existing data mining algorithms in order to improve effectiveness or scope
- Creation of intelligent hybrid systems, using a combination of machine learning techniques
- Drug repurposing using computational intelligence techniques
- Analysis of drug / disease comorbidity data for pharmacovilance
- Complex networks of disease and connectivity
- Developing novel "interestingness" methods for pattern recognition and methods for the "interpretability" of machine learning models.
Current research students:
Over the past 20 years, I have published over a 100 papers. These are in conjunction with University of Sunderland staff, several PhD students and a wide range of external collaborators including academic, medical, commercial and industrial partners.

My interests include Data Mining and knowledge discovery from databases, especially Bioinformatics data. I'm also fascinated by the so called "interestingness" measures which are used to uncover the most useful patterns from the data mining process.
I am also interested in drug repurposing using computational methods and various publicly available databases.
