Lecturer / Stage 2 Year Director (UKM)
My publications are available from the University of Kent's Academic Repository.
My publication list is also available from Google Scholar.
I belong to the following research groups:
I joined the University of Kent in September 2019 from the University of Westminster in London, where I was a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, member of the Health and Social Care Modelling Research Group and an associate member of the interdisciplinary Cancer Research Group. Previously, I worked for over ten years at the University of Nottingham, where I was part of the School of Computer Science and the Advanced Data Analysis Centre. I started there studying for my PhD as a Marie-Curie Fellow and progressed in my academic career to become an Assistant Professor.
My research interests lay in the multi-disciplinary area of applied computer science for real-word applications, especially in biomedical domains. I have expertise in data mining and machine learning applications, from pattern identification to supervised learning. My contributions to knowledge appeared to be of great interest in October 2013, when part of my work on breast cancer was the subject of extensive national media coverage (see, for example, BBC News, ITV, Sky News), and more recently during the Brexit referendum campaign, when a case study from my research was published as part of the Universities for Europe manifesto.
I have published numerous articles in high quality international peer-reviewed journals such as Knowledge-Based Systems, Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, and IEEE Transactions in Medical Imaging. The multidisciplinary nature of my research allowed me to also publish in prestigious medical journals like Cancer Research, Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, British Journal of Cancer, and others. My research has also appeared in international conference proceedings and I have been a member of the technical program committee for several conferences.
