About Me

I recently received the Ph.D. degree at the Centre for Communication Systems Research, University of Surrey, Surrey, U.K. My research is focused on information abstraction and extracting machine-interpretable knowledge from large volumes of sensory data using stream processing and machine learning techniques..
My supervisors are Fran
cois Carrez and Payam Barnaghi .

My research interests are:
- Wireless and Semantic Sensor Networks
- Knowledge Distribution and Retreival
-
Distributed Computing and Programming
- Context Aware Systems


Tools:


KAT - The Knowledge Acquisition Toolbox for Sensor Data
KAT is designed to support the process of knowledge acquisition from numerical sensory data.

JADE-LEAP on Oracle SunSpot
The Java Agent Development Framework does not natively run on the SunSpot. SunSpot is not 100% MIDP conform. By removing of some references and the use of the socket-proxy it can work.

My Git Repository

Mainly WSN and AI related Stuff


Awards and Scholarships:


CCSR Scholarship
JSPS Fellowship for Foreign Researchers
EPSRC UK-ICT pioneers 2012 finalist
ICTKN MEX Scholarship
