Senior Lecturer

I have strong research interest in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cybersecurity and Pedagogical research.

I have served as a technical committee member for a number of national and international conferences and journals.

I teach a range of Computer Science subjects to undergraduate and postgraduate students and I have supervised students at undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD levels.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.


Teaching and supervision

  • Programming languages (Java, C, Python, Haskel and Prolog)
  • Networks
  • Web technologies
  • Group project
  • Enterprise software development
  • Advanced cyber security
  • Databases
  • Legal, Social, Ethical, and Professional Issues in Computer Science

Research interests for potential research students

Please check the information in the "Research" tab for information on my research interest.

I am particularly interested in applied Computer Science projects related to any areas of research interest. I'm very keen to supervise project related to natural language processing, data science, big data and cyber space problems (mainly cyber bullying and hate speech detection in social media text).

I have supervised students at various levels of study (undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD).

Research

My area of expertise is in several Artificial Intelligence. I specialise in natural language processing (where I have extensively published and reviewed peer-reviewed papers), Data Science (where I apply machine learning algorithms to Big Data) and Cybersecurity (dealing with cyber crime, cyber bullying, hate speech and anomaly detection).

I'm also interested in pedagogical research. I have investigated the impact of teaching/learning technologies on students learning.

I have served as a technical committee member for a number of national and international conferences and journals. I'm a member of the Association for Computational Linguistics and a fellow of the AdvanceHE (previously known as Higher Education Academy).
