Role

Abdallah Naser is a Lecturer with the Department of Computer Science at Nottingham Trent University, where he is also a member of the Computational Intelligence and Applications (CIA) research group.

Career overview

Abdallah received his BSc in Computer Engineering from Cyprus International University with High-Honour and his MSc in Information Security and Biometrics with Distinction from the University of Kent, UK. His PhD thesis is entitled “Privacy-preserving Human Behaviour Monitoring Through Thermal Vision” which extends on his research output conducted as part of his PhD study at Nottingham Trent University.

Abdallah was granted a patent for inventing a new way to secure online accounts using concepts of pattern recognition from the Palestinian patent office. Furthermore, he has led and developed several technical solutions for different sectors.

Research areas

Abdallah's current research focuses on computational intelligence, sensor signal processing, and image processing towards enabling privacy-preserving human-centred applications.
