I am now a Research Assistant at the Univeristy of Bristol and based at BT's research lab at Adastral Park, Ipswich.
My PhD started in October 2009 under a Doctoral Training Account grant from EPSRC. My supervisors are Dr Mario Gongora, Professor Adrian Hopgood and Dr Samad Ahmadi from the Centre for Computational Inteligence (CCI).
My thesis focuses on the aplpication of Computational Intelligence in Data Mining. More specifically, it investigates the challenges of mining fuzzy association rules that exhibit temporal patterns.
I am a member of IEEE. My essay entitled "What it means to be a young CI researcher in the 21st century" has won the IEEE CIS competition and is now available to read in IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine. I also won 2nd prize at the IEEE CIS elevator pitch competition held during IEEE WCCI 2012. I am vice-chair of the IEEE CIS GOLD subcommittee, student representative of IEEE CIS UKRI and I was the founding chair of the DMU IEEE Student Branch.
