I am a professor, and Director of the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science (IMPACS) at Aberystwyth University. I am a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales (the national academy of Wales), and a member of UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 Sub-panel 11: Computer Science and Informatics.
My major research interests include: computational intelligence, fuzzy and qualitative systems, reasoning under uncertainty, pattern recognition, data modelling, and real-world applications of such techniques for decision support (e.g. crime detection, consumer profiling, systems monitoring, and medical diagnosis).
I am privileged to have worked with many colleagues who have made considerable contributions to the research I have been engaged with. These colleagues include:
I have been involved in many professional activities, nationally and internationally. I have been a long-serving associate editor/editorial board member of the following leading international journals amongst several others:
I have served as chair/co-chair/vice chair of, and presented a keynote lecture at, many national and international conferences in the area of computational intelligence. One recent such service was acting as the General Chair of the 16th IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2007), held in London, July 23-26, 2007.
I have published 2 research monographs and over 340
peer-refereed papers. A number of my papers have received prestigious
international prizes, including one Outstanding IEEE Transactions Paper Award.
Here is a list of my recent
publications. Comments and discussion welcome.
