Contact Details


I am currently a Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellow at Aberystwyth University, UK.  My research interests include different aspects of Artificial Intelligence. I write on Machine Learning, Data Mining and Data Analytics, Evolutionary Algorithms, and Artificial Immune Systems (AIS), Big Data, and Uncertainty Theories. My career publications include over 30 journal papers (SCI indexed), refereed and ranked conference proceedings papers and book chapters. I am a reviewer for several referred journals such as IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS, SWARM AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION and APPLIED SOFT COMPUTING. I  am also a regular program committee member and a reviewer in several referred international conferences such as the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, the ACM Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference, and the ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications. I was awarded the IEEE EHB Young Researcher First Price, the ACM-W Award, the Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual European Fellowship and the Best Reviewer Award (iCDEc 2018). I also act as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Ambassador, selected as a Female Scientist Role Model, and selected to be among the Heidelberg-Laureate-Forum (HLF) most qualified young researchers.
