I am a Professor of Computational Intelligence at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, UK. I havereceived my BSc. and MTech. in control systems fromIsfahanUniversity of Technology, Iran and Indian Institute of Technology, India respectively. I have received my PhD degree in Learning Fuzzy Systems fromUniversityof Queensland, Australia in 1995. I am currently a Professor of Computational Intelligence at School of Science and Technology, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham,UnitedKingdom where I am leading the research group in Computational Intelligence and Applications. I have authored and co-authored over one hundred scientific papers in the area of computational intelligence, ambient intelligence and control. My research interest is mainly in the area of computational intelligence, ambient intelligence and natural computing. Specific areas of interest include learning fuzzy systems, neuro-computing, sensors network, adaptive systems, data mining and intelligent mobile robot navigation strategies. I have extensive research in ambient assisted living. The aim of his research is to design an unobtrusive “activities of daily living” monitoring system using wireless sensors to allow identification and prediction of abnormal behaviour. The approach used is to gather data on the routine activities of the elders without altering the elders’ normal behaviour. The work conducted so far is part of a vision in Intelligent Environments where unobtrusive measurements from the environment help the occupant being able to live independently.
