Biography

Teaching is my passion. Working with students is pure joy for me. I was awarded “Excellence in Teaching” prize in May 2017.

I teach computer science and software engineering courses including Python language-based programming, Agile development and Software Engineering, Quality Assurance and Testing, Contemporary issues in IT systems, System Engineering, Object Oriented Methods, and Digital Forensics.  

My teaching style is based on five principles: Learning based on Golden Circles and Socratic methods, Uncovering barriers to students’ learning, then helping them to remove such barriers, GPS like a map for teaching a class, Industry focused open-ended complex problem-solving skills and Reversing the classroom.

My research interests include (but not limited to): Design and development of decision support system using game theory and data analytics, Software assurance for systems using data mining, and data analytics, and Software engineering and testing of large real-time systems.
