I am a Professor of Computational Intelligence at School of Science and Technology,Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, United Kingdom. I have made significant contribution to application of intelligent control and robotic systems using soft computing techniques. I have comprehensive background in the Supervision and Teaching of undergraduate and research students and the development of research programs in theory and application of control systems. Also, strong communications and decision-making skills with a make-it-happen ability to organise, manage and motivate multidisciplinary teams at the technical and academic levels to meet targeted objectives.

My research interests include but not limited to; Computational Intelligence, Ambient Computing (Smart Home and Smart Environment), Robotics, Wireless Sensor Network, Intelligent Modeling and Control, Data Mining, Learning Fuzzy Systems, Condition Monitoring and Intelligent Data Analysis. My Contact details are available from contact page.
