My Ph.D.research work spans three areas:

  • First is the development of Machine Learning (Neural Networks, Recurrent Neural Networks, Multi-Context Recurrent Neural Networks, Auto Regression-Multi-Context Recurrent Neural Networks, Kohonon Network, Radial Basis Function, Support Vector Machines, and Ensemble Networks, Learning Algorithms Supervised and non-Supervised algorithms, Back Propagation Learning Algorithms, Nearest Neighbor Algorithm, Back Propagation Through Time, Real-Time Learning Algorithms) to deal with time series applications.
  • The second is the field of time series applications itself (such as Electric Energy Load Forecasting Systems for Power Plant Systems, Digit Recognition Systems, Handwriting Recognition Systems, and Predicting Severity of patients using Data Mining Techniques and Customer Churn Prediction for Telecommunication Systems).
  • Apart from the PhD research area, the third field is Nature Inspired
  • C/C++/Java, Visual Basic, C#, Prolog languages, Advanced  Object Oriented Software Design, Data Structures, and Algorithms.
  • Introduction to Databases, Advanced Database Systems, SQL, MySQL, MS SQL Server, PHP, AJAX, Java Script, Information system.
  • Mathematics for Software, Professional Perspectives, Mathematics for Computing.
  • Data Communications and Networks, Operating Systems and Concurrency, Project Planning and Management, AI, DM, ML, etc.
