I am a Daphne Jackson Fellow at Birkbeck, University of London, in the School of Psychological Science.

Research Interests

I received a BSc and an MSc from Al Nahrain University in Iraq. My background is in general information systems and my interest lies in developing intelligent cognitive computational and AI models. Having worked both as a lecturer and in industry, I completed my PhD at the University of Portsmouth/ School of Engineering.

Now returning to research after a career break, my Fellowship is sponsored by Birkbeck, University of London and the Medical Research Council (MRC).

My project is entitled: Developing an Intelligent Diagnosis Model for Early Awareness of Brain Deterioration in Dementia
