I am a senior lecturer in Artificial Intelligence. My research interests are in the broad area of distributed systems and my recent interests include AI, Machine Learning, Deep NLP and Graph Learning. I contributed to several European and UK research projects funded by FP7, Horizon 2020, UKRI-KTP, and EPSRC. I have published in AI conferences such as ICML, and AIAI and have served in TPC and editorial boards of similar events such as ACM-Eurosys and MDPI journals. Before joining Abertay in Feb 2022, I was a course leader for MSc Cybersecurity at ARU Cambridge where I taught modules in AI and Systems. I was also an undergraduate supervisor at Clare College at University of Cambridge.  Before ARU, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge where I was part of the Systems Research Group, worked on EPSRC research projects, delivered tutorials and supervised undergraduate students.  Previously, I had spent around several years in industry.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and I teach CMP201 Data Structures & Algorithms I and CMP202 Data Structures & Algorithms II for undergraduate students, and CMP511 Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for MSc students. I also supervise Hons and postgraduate students in the areas of: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, NLP, Graph Neural Networks, Distributed Systems, Networks, Large Scale Computing, Cloud, Edge, Fog, and Cluster Computing. 

Research interests

My research interest lies in the broad area of distributed systems where my current interests are in AI, Machine Learning, Graph Learning, Natural Language Processing, Optimisation, Cloud, Edge, Fog, Large Scale Computing, Blockchain, Cyber Security and Internet of Things.
