About me

I am a Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. My primary research addresses the intelligent & secure distributed systems, including developing and applying new software processes and methods for systems development by using modern technologies such as blockchain, IoTs, digital twin and cloud/edge computing. My previous research has addressed participatory sensing, (Big-)data management & analysis, cross-thematic system integration (a.k.a. system of systems) and system engineering processes. 

I have been applying my research on digital urban governance and sustainable smart future cities by engaging with many European cities through different international projects since 2009. I also look after the smart cities theme of the Computer Science Research Centre (CSRC).

I have worked on several externally funded large-scale collaborative research and innovation projects. These projects include: FP6 Health-e-Child (integrated health informatics), FP6 HUMBOLDT (geo-spatial data harmonisation), FP7 LifeWatch (biodiversity digital infrastructure - preparatory phase), FP7 Urban API as Co-PI (digital participatory governance through 2D/3D visualisation/simulation tools), FP7 DECUMANUS as Co-PI (remote sensing for environmental and climate change applications), H2020 Smarticipate as UWE Project manager (open data, 2D/3D visualisation and digital participatory governance platform), H2020 CURE as Co-PI (remote sensing for cross-thematic applications for urban resilience) and Horizon Europe GREENGAGE as UWE Project manager (citizen observatories, remote sensing, net-zero climate and environment).  

I teach at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. I also supervise undergraduate projects/dissertations and PhD students. I would be happy to hear from potential doctoral candidates who have interests in the above or related research areas.

I am on the scientific committee of several International conferences. I am also on the review panel of several reputable international journals. 

I actively pursue external funding and look forward to forming new academic, research and industrial collaborations.
