Teaching & Supervision

Apart from the role of module coordinator for Honours Projects (CSCU9Z7), I am teaching the 2018 Spring modules of Manging Information (CSCU9T4), Systems (CSCU9V4), Information Systems (CSCU9T6) and Evolutionary & Heuristic Optimisation (ITNPBD8). I also lectured various UG/PG modules including Essential Skills for the Information Age, Making the Most of World Wide Web, Foundations of Information Technology, Decision Support Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Programming Language Paradigms, Introduction to Programming and Algorithms, Requirements Engineering, Foundations of Software Engineering, and Introduction to Algorithms during the past several years.

I am offering to supervise PhD projects in the areas of Cloud Computing, Intelligent Scheduling Systems (particularly in Transport & Logistics), Meta-heuristics (both on the theoretical and practical sides), Multi-Objective Decision Making, Optimization & Search Methodologies, Machine Learning and Data Mining. Candidates are of course welcome to propose their own research agendas. Please email me with your CV and a short proposal if you would like to pursue a PhD with me as supervisor.
