Supervisors

You can find all supervisors in the Department of Computing & Informatics in this page by using the navigation on the right if you are browsing this page on a desktop computer. If you are using a mobile device, please click the Table of Contents on the top to expand the list. Please read their areas of interests and notes carefully and use the email address to contact them.

Note:

  1. Please do not contact a supervisor if he/she is already full. Those supervisors with an asterisk(*) indicate they are already full so they should not be contacted unless otherwise stated. Note this would not affect you if he/she has already agreed to supervise you.
  2. Please do not just simply send an email to a supervisor and ask them whether they can supervise you. You should make an appointment with the supervisor to discuss your project idea in person.
  3. All supervisors should be able to supervise any undergraduate projects regardless the degree title or the nature of the project so their areas of interest only suggest their interests not limits.

Areas of interest:

  • Cyber security
  • Smartphone security
  • Digital forensics
  • IoT security
  • Android memory forensics
  • web security and online fraud prevention
  • intrusion detection

Note:

  • Alexios is particularly keen on supervising students interested in writing papers based on their final year projects. As such, he is happy to provide any additional support associated with this, and help in finding additional funding for students to present their work, either in the UK or internationally. This option will be of particular interest to those wishing to pursue doctoral research after their degree.

Email: amylonas@bournemouth.ac.uk


Areas of interest:

  • Everything in Computing (Hardware, operating systems, compilers, networks, databases, programming, systems analysis and design, web, etc)
  • I like Systems Development Projects where you create programs that solve real problems, though be aware that you do not have to do the whole SDLC for a development project. A Feasibility Study is fine on its own, if well executed and systematically carried out.

Profile: http://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/gollis

Email: gollis@bournemouth.ac.uk


Areas of interest:

  • Software engineering
  • Evaluation of software engineering projects
  • Bug and fault finding
  • Software metrics

Here are the points from my Options Day Talk

  • Ideally computing and software engineering projects.
  • So please some development.
  • I like the discussion and evaluation of bigger computing/software engineering issues.
  • * E.g. comparisons of techniques, practices and technologies against metrics
  • * Evaluation of publicly available projects, like github projects, would also be possible.
  • * Naturally they all would need some coding

  • I am also happy to function as client for projects. I will put some possible projects up for this purpose. However, I will not be the supervisor for these projects.

Project Idea(s) as Supervisor:

  • An Electronic Scratch Card Learning and Assessment Tool - To be used in team-based learning whereby students work in teams to answer MCQs to test them on their pre-reading. Students find out if they got the answer right by using the scratch card thus getting ‘immediate feedback’. At the moment, this requires purchasing cards and adding up team scores by hand, which then need to be inputted into a spreadsheet for analysis. - This project has a client.

Project Ideas as Client:

  • A Student Record System
