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.

Academic Interests: cloud security, cryptography, security analytics, network security, security awareness, software defined security, data security, threat intelligence, security management, security monitoring, anomaly detection.

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. For example, a Feasibility Study is fine on its own, provided that it is well executed and systematically carried out.

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

Email: gollis@bournemouth.ac.uk

Room: P334b


Areas of interest:

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

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

Email: gliebchen@bournemouth.ac.uk


Areas of interest:

Areas of interest:

  • Information system design
  • Information system development
  • Process aware applications
  • Web mashups
  • Web services (design, usage, integration, composition)
  • Enterprise Information Systems
  • NOT website development

Most importantly, my approach to problems:

  • A project is about solving a problem - answer a question
  • The overriding project objective is: “to answer the question”
  • The most common role of the artifact is to help with evaluating the solution
  • “there is not enough software” is a poor problem
  • Very few students can come up with good plans on their own, talk to me!
  • For MSc students: Talk to me before you start writing a plan (or even before you do research methods) - otherwise you will likely have to throw a lot of work.

Concrete projects Dr. de Vrieze has a number of past concrete projects available in the project list. New projects may be available in the future.

Projects for those who are not sure what they want to do

Project 1: Creating a scalable on-line assessment system It is straightforward to put lectures on line for mass-learning. Many have done this on YouTube and lectures receiving over 1M hits are common. What is not so straightforward is how to organize these into a teaching programme. The difficulty comes with the assessment/creditation part of the system. How do you assess 100K or 1M subscribers to your programme? One way to do this is to set up systems in which the assessment is generated by the students who use it and for the students to create questions for other users. I have some ideas how this could be done in practice and I would be looking to work with a student who is interested in this kind of educational/web project. You would need to be confident in your creation/implementation of a web app or mobile app system which could run this kind of scalable assessment.

Project 2: Developing a guided paper writing tool for students Most students who have never written an academic paper before find it difficult to know where to begin. I have a ten step programme which guides students through the process. I would like to have this set up as a web-based tool which not only guides students through the process but provides some basic feedback. You would need to be confident in your creation/implementation of a web app. Contact me for more details.

Areas of interest:

  • Consciousness/Thought/Computational Intelligence
  • Complex (mathematical) networks
