About Professor Hissam Tawfik

Hissam Tawfik is a Professor of Computer Science with research expertise and interests in the areas of Biologically Inspired Computing, AI, Applied Data Science and E-Health.

Hissam holds a PhD in Computer Engineering from the University of Manchester (then UMIST) and has a research track record of more than 130 refereed publications in reputable international journals and conference proceedings such as the IEEE Transactions on IT in BioMedicine, IET Communications, Advanced Engineering Informatics, Ad Hoc Networks and Computer and Network Applications.

Hissam is an editor of the International Journal of Future Generation Computer Systems (Elsevier), the International Journal of Neural Computing and Applications (Springer), and International Journal of Medical Engineering and Informatics and a guest Editor of the International Journal of Medical Informatics (Elsevier). He is a visiting Professor at the University of Seville (Spain), and is a chair of the International Conference Series on Developments in eSystems Engineering (DESE).

Hissam currently leads the Data Science and AI reserach at the school of Computing, Creative Technologies and Engineering. Before joining Leeds Beckett University in 2015, Hissam worked for University of Salford and Liverpool Hope University.

Current Teaching

  • Critical Perspectives on Information (Masters)
  • Research Practice (Masters)

Research Interests

Current research projects led by Hissam Tawfik include the application of data science and machine learning techniques for weight management, healthy living and active ageing, and neural computing applications for time-series prediction.

Hissam currently leads two Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) projects involving the applications of data science and AI tools for user experience and predictive analytics for Business.

Prof Tawfik’ s recent editorial activities include a new Book (Springer) entitled 'Applications of Big Data Analytics' (by Alani, Tawfik, Saeed, and Anya, 2018) and the Proceedings of the 2017 International Conference on Developments in eSystems Engineering, IEEE (by Hamdan, Al-Jumeily, Hussain, Tawfik, and Hind, 2018).

Hissam has recently been a co-organiser of the special session on ‘Computational Intelligence for Data Engineering and its Applications to Real-World Problems”, for the IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2018, and the special session on ‘IoT and Smart Data’ for the International Conference on Intelligent Computing, 2018, Wuhan, China.

Hissam is currently the Guest Editor of the journal special issue on "Security, Usability and Sustainability of Smart Cities"; International Journal of Reliable Intelligent Environment (Springer), and Co-Guest Editor of the journal special issue on "Data Science and Internet of Everything (IoE)"; Journal of Sensors, MDPI.
