About me


I graduated with an honours degree in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Birmingham and an MSc in Artificial Intelligence and Agents. I then pursued a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Essex where my research topic was focused on adaptive fuzzy embedded agent approaches for ambient intelligent environments. Over the course of my career I've worked in both industrial and academia. My work has involved looking into interesting applications of computational intelligence for various real world problems such as smart environments, elderly care, energy optimization, information analysis and decision-making.

My research interests include computational intelligence, fuzzy logic, applications of type-2 fuzzy logic, hybrid systems using fuzzy logic with genetic algorithms and neural networks, ambient intelligence, pervasive computing and intelligent buildings. Other areas of interest also include embedded agents and applications of computational intelligence for commerce, healthcare and more recently affective computing.
