Profile

Following completion of my MSc in Advanced Computer Science at the University of Sheffield, I joined the Department of Computer Science as a researcher in the area of Human Computer Interaction, Data Visualisation and user interface development. I subsequently pursued my PhD, titled ‘Visualising Large Semantic Datasets: A generic, scalable and aesthetic approach’. My PhD thesis focused on applying interactive visualisations and User-Centered Design techniques to support exploration of large semantic datasets. I briefly worked in the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare as a research scientist before joining the Department of Computer Science in 2014 as a postdoctoral researcher to continue my research on large scale data analytics. I joined Sheffield Hallam University as a lecturer in Computing in September 2017, and subsequently joined the Information School in the University of Sheffield as a lecturer in October, 2018.

Research interests

My research explores developing techniques and mechanisms for reducing the barrier for user communities in understanding very large complex multidimensional datasets. I conduct inter-disciplinary research on highly engaging, interactive and visual mechanisms in conjunction with complex querying techniques for seamless navigation, exploration and understanding of complex datasets. I have applied my research in a wide range of application domains such as Aerospace Engineering, Sports Informatics, Crisis/Emergency Management, Smart Cities and Mobility Planning. As a part of my research, I collaborate with large multi-disciplinary teams of academics, industry partners, city councils and planners. I have worked in several large research and industrial projects funded by the European Union, Innovate UK and European Space Agency. My research includes:

  • Studying and developing data and visual analytic techniques to analyse massive volumes of dynamic data in near real time;
  • Citizen Science and Crowdsourcing techniques for observing physical phenomena, events and environments;
  • User Interface development, Human Computer Interaction and User Centered Design;
  • Assistive technologies to support independent activities of daily living.

Teaching interests

My primary areas of teaching involve big data, data analytics, HCI and visualisation topics. I am currently contributing to ‘Information and Knowledge Management’, ‘Human Computer Interaction’ and ‘Researching Social Media’, taught across a range of MSc programs. I also supervise dissertations from various MSc programs. As a computer scientist, I have taught various technical subjects such as programming, data structures, web technologies, big data and distributed systems, visual analytics and Tableau.

I organised a series of tutorials on Visual Analytics with Social Media for Crisis Management 24 at the International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management over several years (ISCRAM 2013, 2014, 2015,2017). The tutorials have had an increasing interest among a wide range of participants from researchers to practitioners and volunteers. I also organised a series of tutorials at ESWC, on Visual Analytics with LOD (Linked Open Data) and Social Media 25 for 2013, 2014.
