My research interests are in mathematical modelling, data/text mining, optimisation and computational intelligence and their applications including the facility location problem, clustering, vehicle routing, scheduling and timetabling, data mining and web log mining, use of artificial intelligence in interactive environments, object recognition and assisted living. I founded the optimisation and knowledge discovery research group (OPT-KD) in 2005 and co-founded the Virtual Reality and Assisted Living research group (Vir.AL) in 2012.
