School of Information Systems Computing and Mathematics
I am fortunate enough to lead a team of motivated, bright and enthusiastic individuals who work on exciting research areas within my expertise.
Michael is exploring digital games-based solutions to enahnce learners' programming skills
Kaveh is exploring solutions for personalising multimedia video abstracts
Mohamed's research targets the area of web services security and steganography
Christian is exploring solutions for QoS-aware load distribution
Emmanuel (Manos) Perakakis
Manos is looking at how to solve research issues pertaining to building multi-platform interactive TV ads
Past members of my team, whom I have supervised on exciting projects as part of their PhD and postdoc studies, include:
Dr Stephen Gulliver (PhD, 2003) - Stephen explored the wys<> wyg relation in multimedia applications using the Quality of Perception metric. Stephen and I were the first persons to use eye-tracking to explore perceptual multimedia quality and to apply eye tracking in the assessment of continuous media.
Dr Tacha Serif (PhD, 2004) - Tacha used the Quality of Perception metric to explore the user infotainment experience across multiple access devices in his PhD. We then subsequently explored the use of PDAs for pervasive clinical data collection.
Dr Oyindamola Abass (PhD, 2007) - Oyinda integrated the use of original strategies incorporating confidence traits in e-negotiations.
Dr Oluwakemi Ademoye (PhD, 2008) - Kemi’s innovative work focused on the use of the Quality of Perception metric to explore the user experience of olfaction-enhanced multimedia.
Dr Elisabeth Enabulele (PhD, 2008) - Elisabeth enlarged the concept of quality in broadband applications through a multi-stakeholder perspective.
Dr Elahe Kani (PhD, 2008) - Elahe’s PhD focused on the implications of employing user-centred design strategies in media-rich digital libraries.
Dr Kunle Olowe (PhD, 2009) - Kunle used the Quality of Perception metric to explore the user infotainment experience of packet-based voice quality in communication networks
Dr Adel Almohammed (PhD, 2010) - Adel explored novel and efficient ways of using steganography in both images and video media content
Dr Fotis Spyridonis (PhD, 2012) - Fotis studyied the use of 3D visualization techniques for real-time, ubiquitous, data collection in telemedicine.
Dr Bachar Alrouh (PhD, 2012) - Bachar’s research focused on web services security and the computational overheads involved in adding extra such functionality to distributed systems
Dr Mathias Kretschmer (PhD, 2012) - Mathias looked at seamless integration of Broadcast technologies such as Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) to introduce support for high-bandwidth multimedia services.
Dr Tor-Morten Gronli (PhD, 2012) - Tor-Morten’s work looked at enriching the concept of context with elements of media-rich Web 2.0 and situational awareness within the framework of a Personal Information Manager.
Dr Jarle Hansen (PhD, 2012) - Jarle’s research focused on information sharing between mobile devices using the Android platform.
Dr Abdullah Alhayani (PhD, 2013) - Abdullah’s explored threats to information security in financial institutions in Saudi Arabia.
Dr Pardis Pourghomi (PhD, 2014) - Pardis’s research focused on mobile payment solutions using Near Field Communications, resulting in several innovative protocols for NFC-based financial transactions.
Dr Mubarak Alkhrang (PhD, 2012) - Mubarak’s work investigated e-learning adoption in Kuwait.
