I hold the position of Associate Head of Division within the Finance, Economics, Accounting, and Analytics Division of the School of Business where I also serve as a Lecturer in Digital Analytics. Additionally, I am a researcher specialising in Network Programmability, Smart Contracts, and AI within the Department of Computer Science, School of Engineering. In the latter role, I also serve as a senior member of the Smart Internet Technologies (SuITE) research group and a member of Cognitive Systems Research Centre at LSBU.

I completed my BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, followed by an MSc in Software Engineering from the School of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Engineering at City, University of London. For my master's dissertation, titled "Control End-to-end job latency of MapReduce in heterogeneous networks," I focused on managing the latency of MapReduce jobs in diverse networks. Since 2018, I have been working as an Associate Lecturer in computer science at LSBU. During my tenure, I had the opportunity to contribute as a coordinator in the EU-funded project CiProVoT, where I was responsible for the development of a Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) platform.

My research interests revolve around Software-Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), Smart Contracts, and AI. I consider myself an early career researcher, software engineer, and expert in the fields of SDN, NFV, and Smart Contracts.

I am a member of prestigious organisations such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the British Computer Society (BCS), and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
