I joined
Brunel as Professor of Computing in 2000. Prior to that, I was a member of
academic staff at Birkbeck, University of London in
Computer Science and research staff at Durham and Heriot-Watt Universities in
Engineering. At Brunel, I was Director of Research for the School of
Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics (2006-2014) and Doctoral
Programme Director for Computer Science (2008-2013).

My research
interests include the construction of computationally intelligent algorithms,
software and systems as well as the integration, analysis and visualisation of
large-scale, fast evolving real-world complex data. I chaired the first (see
the conference
report) & second International
Symposia on Intelligent Data Analysis in 1995 & 1997. More recently, I have
been calling for the introduction of a new A-level course in the UK on *Data Analytics* to lay a firm foundation
for next generation data scientists in light of Big Data (see an official
report: A
World Full of Data by Roger Porkess, launched by
the Royal Statistical Society and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries on 11
September 2013).

I have advised funding agencies on
interdisciplinary research programmes in data analytics, genomics and security
as well as served on grant panels of research councils in the UK, including the
BBSRC, EPSRC and NERC. Recently I have
been named as a 2016
Highly Cited Researcher (HCR), based on the citation data for the journals
indexed in the *Web of Science* during
the 11-year period 2004-2014. Previously I was also included in the list of
Thomson Reuters HCRs in 2014 and in 2015.

**News**: Miqing Li, a PhD student at the Centre for
Intelligent Data Analysis, was announced as the **winner** of
the *Best Student Paper* award at the *IEEE Congress on
Evolutionary Computation (CEC-2014)** *for the paper entitled “A
Test Problem for Visual Investigation of High-Dimensional Multi-Objective
Search”.
