Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence

Biography

I am a Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence at the School of Science, Engineering and Environment of the University of Salford. I am also a visiting scholar at the School of Biological Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast. My areas of expertise are computer vision, machine learning, Digital Signal Processing and Electronic Engineering.

I received a BSc and MSc in Electronic Engineering from the University of Technology, Iraq in 2010 and 2012, respectively. I received a PhD in Artificial Intelligence for visual processing from Newcastle university, UK in 2018. My PhD thesis involved developing machine vision systems that observe complex environments and rapidly categorise objects and scenes. From 2018 to 2020, I worked as a Research Associate at Newcastle University, UK. From 2020 to 2022, I worked as a Research Fellow at Queen’s University Belfast, UK. During the two periods above, I worked on multiple EU H2020 projects that involved developing state-of-the-art deep learning technologies to automatically capture animal behaviours in a group-house environment.    

Areas of research

Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Machine/Robotic Vision, Digital Signal Processing

Research Interests

My research focuses on developing machine learning/vision methods to solve large-scale problems, e.g., Agriculture, Biomedical Engineering and text mining. Areas of research include Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Machine/Robotic Vision and Digital Signal Processing.
