Biography

Dr. Shahin Rostami is a Senior Academic (Associate Professor) in Data Science at the Bournemouth University, where he has been a faculty member since 2014. His research applications are in the areas of Digital Health and Threat Detection, where he has also acted as a consultant and has many publications. He has organised and chaired conference special sessions, and acts as a reviewer for high-impact academic journals. He has also supervised many research assistants, PhD students, and Master's students.

As a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy he is committed to academic quality and enhancement, and he is the Programme Leader for: - MS.c. Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (DSAI) - MS.c. Applied Data Analytics (ADA) - MS.c. Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence (DHAI)

Research

Dr. Rostami holds a Ph.D. in the field of Computational Intelligence with applications to Concealed Weapon Detection. His research interests lie within Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, ranging from theory to their application to Digital Healthcare and Threat Detection. Currently, he is consulting for and supervising PhD research projects in Non-Contact Vital Sign Measurement and Multi-Objective Concealed Weapon Detection. He has published in many high-impact journals and conferences, and organised/chaired special sessions including the IEEE CIBCB 2017 “Machine Learning in Medical Diagnosis and Prognosis”. He also leads the Computational Intelligence Research Initiative (CIRI), and currently supervises 6 Ph.D. and 3 Ms.c. students in related subjects.
