I am a researcher in Artificial Intelligence and a part-time lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Portsmouth. I received a BSc in Computing from University of Portsmouth in 2011, an MSc in Software Engineering from University of Southampton in 2012, and a PhD in Machine Learning from University of Portsmouth in 2015.

My research interests include data mining, machine learning, neural networks, rule based systems, intelligent systems, expert systems, fuzzy systems, big data analytics and complex systems and networks.

I have some skills in programming and development such as Java, PHP, MySQL, Zend Framework, JavaScript and Object Oriented Methodology. I am proficient in optimisation, feature selection, feature extraction, classification, regression, association, clustering and prediction.

I have published a research monograph in Springer and a number of papers in areas such as data mining, machine learning and intelligent systems. I have been registered as a reviewer for several established journals such as IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems and Fuzzy Sets and Systems (Elsevier). I have also recently become a member of the programme committee for the upcoming UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI 2016), the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2016) and the International Conference on Human System Interaction (HSI 2016) with the responsibility to review papers. In addition, I have recently been awarded Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) with designatory letters MIET.
