Muhammad Azeem Abbas is a highly skilled artificial intelligence/machine learning professional having both industrial and academic experience. Before UWTSD, he was working as a Research Officer on industry-led projects at Leeds Beckett University (LBU) and as an Assistant Professor at a university. As a faculty member, he has taught both core and elective courses of computer science and information technology degree programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

He has completed three research projects as a principal investigator that were funded by national and international funding agencies. He was a lead member of the team responsible for drafting the proposals for the establishment of national research centres at the agriculture university.

In addition to teaching and research, Dr. Abbas is a passionate programmer with software development experience in both the public and private sectors. During his career as a software engineer, he has developed several enterprise and commercial software projects. His software development expertise is in C/C++, Python (TensorFlow and PyTorch), full-stack development, .Net framework and Node.js.

Dr. Abbas is serving as an editorial member of the Computer and Education: Artificial Intelligence journal (Elsevier).

Dr. Abbas’s research focus is Artificial Intelligence (AI); more specifically, the application of AI and machine learning in education, health, and industrial operations. He has recently published several applied research contributions in the field of artificial intelligence in education and health. Two PhD and more than ten Master’s students have completed their research dissertation under his supervision.
