I am a PhD student in the School of Computing, Faculty of Technology at the University of Portsmouth.

My research work focuses on network fault management, specifically computer network faults classification in real time systems based on proposed novel Fuzzy Probabilistic Neural Network Classifier (FPNNC), which is a hybrid based on Fuzzy Cluster Mean (FCM) with Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN), hybrid supervised (PNN) and unsupervised (FCM) learning techniques.
