Research Interests

Ethical Hacking and Information Security; Application of ICT in Energy Management Systems; Design and implementation of secure web-based enterprise application using Agent and Web Services Technologies; Fundamental research and empirical analysis in the area of distributed network computing, especially multi-agent systems (MAS); Endowing autonomous agents with the ability to detect and diagnose exceptions in a cooperative manner and developing techniques for diagnosing and handling runtime exceptions in open MAS where agents belong to different organisations

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
