Professional

Qualifications

  • Doctor of Philosophy - Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland (2004)
  • Bachelor of Science Honours (Computer Science) - University of Zimbabwe (1996)
  • Bachelor of Science (Mathematics and Computer Science) - University of Zimbabwe (1991)

Research Expertise

Research Interests

  • Knowledge Engineering: modelling domain knowledge (specification, representation and complex querying) and knowledge incorporation into computational paradigms and algorithms. Advanced and innovative applications of emerging database and XML technologies in this area;
  • Health, Nutrition & Bio-Informatics: innovative applications of knowledge engineering, process engineering, optimisation and AI techniques, and software engineering paradigms in the domains of health and nutrition. Modelling and computerising clinical practive guidelines. Data and software engineering methods for supporting e-heath record implementations. Knowledge incorporation into optimisation algorithms and computational paradigms for solving nutrition problems, e.g., the meal planning problem.
  • Computer Security and Information Privacy: the challenges arising from securing e-health information in an increasingly Internet-enabled and networked world.
