Teaching and research

Teaching

I use a variety of different teaching styles and learning activities, depending on the type of module and the learner group. I view learning as a socio-cultural, constructivist and interactionist process in the Vygotskian tradition. My main goals are always to help students develop their intellectual, practical and creative potential and to encourage their personal development. My teaching puts the learner at the centre. I aim to provide a safe and interactive learning space, design work programmes with clear progression routes, and create study materials and tasks which take into account different learner types and mixed-level learner groups.

Undergraduate, Postgraduate

Research

Health Informatics and Biomedical Engineering based on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Environments and Cyber Security supported by Artificial Intelligence are my research interests. I have been leading the way nationally and internationally in systems advanced communications, shaping new thinking, accelerating discovery, and nurturing bright ideas to improve lives.

The interdisciplinary approach is framing and moving my research into combining various areas of applications of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The importance of my research approach is evidenced by my numerous well-received talks and presentations at national and international conferences and by the status of the international academic and professional journals where I publish my work.

This is driving breakthroughs and innovation in a range of areas, including: Applied AI: Artificial Neural Network, Machine-Learning and Deep-Learning, E-Health and Healthcare; Brain-Signals and MRI, Wearable devices, Telemedicine and Mobile Telemedicine applications, Wireless Sensors Networks: Bio- application, Energy Application, Security of Chip and Wireless Security, Wireless Networks, Radio Frequency (RF) and Antenna Propagation, Mobile Multimedia, and Video/Image and Signal Processing Application.

Current projects

OpenMind: Neural network analysis of brain activity underpinning information processing and situation awareness by Deep-learning, £100k, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory -DST, MoD, 8 months, 2019, UK.

OpenMind is an interdisciplinary project, including Psychology, Neurosciences & Engineering Technologies, at the University of Gloucestershire. The project aim s to develop an automation technique, that can identify unique EEG markers, to model the relationship between the EEG data and changes in aspects of situation awareness and bias in humans.

- EEG data with clearly defined point of loss of SA have been collected through simple task-based studies.

- A deep auto-encoder based design to denoise EEG data and remove ocular artefacts.

- An artificial neural network design to provide an automated analysis, by providing a quick and relatively easy system to identify unique EEG markers underpinning changes in bias and situation awareness.
