In addition to my BSc and MSc, I have recently completed a PhD in Computer Science under the supervision of Professor Mark Levene and Professor George Roussos.


My research interests cover a broad area of computer science. My current research is in the area of data mining, machine learning and statistical modelling. I am exploring new techniques for location prediction, user identification and detection of social grouping of mobile users within specific environments. For more information, please refer to my recent publications.

Work Experience

I worked as software developer for a number of companies in the engineering and the insurance sectors. For more details visit http://m.eldaw.googlepages.com/home
