A software engineer interested in various activities involving software design, development and delivery working with various platforms and tools. Most of my work branches into two disciplines, (1) interdisciplinary research with biologists, economists and social scientists involving high performance computing grids and Clouds to create a deep understanding of complexity research, and (2) the other being more focused towards Cloud computing investigating service deployment, standards and security research.
I have a PhD in high performance computing and agent-based modelling focusing on economic market models from the University of Sheffield and have previously held positions as a Research Fellow at the Universities of Sheffield and Leeds. I have also worked in industry as a software engineer in Sheffield for several years and collaborating with various universities and industries across the Globe.
My teaching and research activities revolve around Cloud Computing issues - working with web services, brokering models, trust, risk, security and optimisation aspects in the Cloud and developing Cloud applications and Agent-based modelling techniques (particularly using FLAME), developing testing and verification techniques, game theory, multi-objective optimisation, agent learning and studying model and simulations using various computational techniques.
I am a fellow of the Higher Education (FHEA), member of the British Computing Society (MBCS), member of the Women in engineering Society (WES) and ACM Computing and Women chapters (W-ACM). I am also a STEM ambassador for promoting female careers in Science and Engineering for Yorkshire.
