Research interests

My research interests lie in the field of trustworthy AI, machine learning, system dependability analysis, reliability centred maintenance (RCM) and intelligent maintenance. I am also interested in model-driving engineering (MDE), automated model transformations and its validation and verification.

Most recently I have been interested in establishing trustworthiness assessment framwork for the design, development and deployment of AI-based systems. This involves the assessment of AI bias, robustness, safety, fairness, explainability, ethicality and etc.

I am also interested in integrating state-of-the-art AI, IoT, Big Data, Blockchain and Digital Twins into the model-based dependability analysis field to obtain an intelligent dependability analysis and maintenance of systems.
