I am an expert in data analytics with extensive knowledge and experience in data sciences, and machine learning and their applications in medical, behavioural and sport. 

I currently work in the school of digital technologies at Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland. I have introduced new machine learning approaches during my research related to rule induction, artificial neural network and feature selection among others and supervised multiple research projects. 

These approaches have resulted in published works, including recent datasets on Autism Spectrum Disorder (Autism datasets; Toddlers dataset) and Cybersecurity (Phishing data), as well as Autism screening mobile applications based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning with Dr. Reza Shahamiri (ASDTests; Autism AI).
