About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing, at Dublin City University (DCU). I lecture on the MSc in Blockchain and I am currently a Co-PI of PRIVATT: Assessing Irish Attitudes to Privacy in Times of COVID19 project funded by Science Foundation Ireland.

Previously, I have held the position of Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Irish Institute of Digital Business (IIDB, dotLab), School of Business, Dublin City University (DCU). My work was part of the RECAP Horizon 2020 project that focused on the design and development of the next generation of Cloud and Edge/Fog computing through optimisation, automation and simulation (simulation of large-scale Cloud and Edge-/Fog- Computing environments).

I have also occupied the position of Post-Doctoral Researcher at the CONSUS research centre, University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland, in collaboration with Origin Entreprises PLC. I applied machine learning techniques on real agriculture data to improve sustainable crop production and management techniques, which will lead to more efficient food production with lower environmental impacts.

I obtained my PhD thesis in Computer Science in Insight Centre for Data Analytics, UCD. My Ph.D. was on the design of a highly scalable distributed Big Data mining framework.

My research interests are in the following areas: Big data Analytics, Machine Learning, Data Governance, Parallel and Distributed Systems, Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing, Blockchain, Security and Privacy. I am an academic member of Lero and ADAPT research centres.
