Professor of Data Science

I am a Professor of Data Science and the leader for research and innovation of Data Science and Big Data at the University of Sunderland. 

I am the Chair for the Big Data Task Force (BDTF) of IEEE computational intelligence society (CIS), and a member of Data Mining and Big Data Analytics Technical Committee of IEEE CIS. I am also a founding member of the Technical Committee on Big Data (TCBD) of IEEE Communications, and a member of Big Data Task Force of China Information Industry Association (CIIA). I am an advisory board member for IEEE Special Interest Group (SIG) on Big Data for Cybersecurity.

I am an Associate Editor for IEEE Transaction on Big Data, a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Big Data Intelligence, and an Academic Editor of PeerJ and PeerJ Computer Science. I am a colleague of grant review for EPSRC, MRC, BBSRC, British Council, Heart Research UK, Welcome Trust and Nuffield Foundation.

Teaching and supervision


Research interests for potential research students

I supervise PhD students in the interdisciplinary area of Data Science, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Mining, Predictive Analytics, Bioinformatics, Big Data enabled Intelligence, Genome Data Analytics, Health and Medical Informatics, Precision Medicine and Personalised Healthcare, Data Governance and Intelligence.

My research students have obtained prizes as the winner of the best presentation, the best poster of international conferences, and have been selected in the collection of top papers from international journals.

Research

My research is in the interdisciplinary area of Data Science focusing on developing advanced approaches and technologies for the integrated analytics of structured and unstructured data. The methods developed by my group, including ensemble learning, deep learning, integrated analytics, big data enabled intelligence, have been successfully applied in a range of areas including bio-medical and health informatics and industries, and enabled the discovery of key target biomarkers for melanoma, breast cancer and male infertility.
