To research students, please download this researchPack. File names are ordered in the order you should read them in. At least read “0_researchAdvices” documents. It will guide you through other readings when needed, and if needed.

My current research areas:

  • Parallel & Distributed Computing
  • Big Data & high dimensional (Tensor) Computing
  • Optimisation Techniques & Combinatorial Algorithms
  • Legal Ontologies
  • Bioinformatics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Image & Video or generally signal processing

My MSc and PhD research work developed a library for high dimensional datasets (hypercube or tensors) data structure representation and indexing, using the conformal computing – Mathematics of Arrays (MoA) constructs. I developed a hyper-cube partitioning scheme for parallel processing, and applied it to the Multiple Sequence Alignment problem, using a reduced search space method.
