University of Surrey Logo

I am Professor of Machine Intelligence at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and a member of the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) at the University of Surrey.

I am Deputy Head and Group Lead at the Care Research and Technology Centre at the UK Dementia Research Institute. I was technical lead of the Department of Health/NHS TIHM for Dementia. I am an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Big Data and vice-chair of the IEEE SIG on Big Data Intelligent Networking. I received the FEPS Teacher of the Year Award (2017) at the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences and an IEEE Outstanding Leadership Award in 2017. I am a visiting Professor at the Department of Brain Sciences at Imperial College London.

Please note that this page only includes some of my recent (and a little bit) successful work and does not report any of my failures (e.g. rejected papers, grant applications, fellowships, etc.). Adding the failures would have created a very long page.

Research interests

My main research goal is to develop information processing and machine learning methods for cyber-physical and healthcare systems. I work on machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), semantic computing, adaptive algorithms, time-series data analysis and computational neuroscience to solve problems and develop new technologies for the future Internet/Web and healthcare systems.  My colleagues and I are currently working on:
  • AI and IoT enabled solutions to provide personalised care for people affected by Dementia
  • Machine learning and causal networks to create symptom experience models for cancer care
  • The unobtrusive monitoring of patients in hospital wards and at home
  • Time-series data processing and pattern analysis
  • Deep learning and semi-supervised learning models to analyse dynamic data streams
