Research

I have worked in academia since 2009 in several positions such as research assistant, teacher assistant, post-doctoral researcher, lecturer and senior researcher. I jointed the University Turku as a research visitor in 2011 and then after 6 months I got an offer to start my Ph.D. During my Ph.D, I have also visited and worked the Birmingham University for almost half year in 2015.  I have also worked at the Kingston University in London as a research visitor in 2019.  I have collaborated with these universities and worked on various projects. These international research visits greatly helped me in building new connection for further international collaborations in many ways.  Currently, I am working on several projects at UTU and supervising several M.Sc. student. My research interests include Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Data Analysis, Autonomous Systems and Cloud Computing. I have published +30 articles in journal and conference proceedings.
