Background

Before joining Anglia Ruskin University, Kamal worked as a Research Associate with the University of Leicester on modelling and analysis of clinical waveform data by using Bayesian approaches. Before that he worked in the University of Ulster on design and development of large-scale neuronal networks by using C programming language with Message Passing Interface (MPI). His areas of expertise include computational intelligence, computational neuroscience, distributed computing and Bayesian inference.

He is a member of German Neuroscience Society. In 2013 he won the best student paper award in Computing in the University of Ulster. He had worked with Oracle and IBM partner companies in Jordan. He has more than six years of experience in developing Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications and J2EE applications by using JAVA and IBM tools. He was Sun Certified Java Programmer, Sun Certified Java Web Components Developer, Sun Certified Web Services Developer, and IBM Certified Web Content Management Developer.
