We are in the Faculty of Cognitive Sciences and Human Development at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). For postgraduate study application to my lab please apply through our university Centre of Postgraduate Study. This lab offers postgraduate study by research (full-time or part-time) at the Master or PhD level with the concentration in Cognitive Science and Intelligent Systems. There are two intakes every year, February and September. More details about application procedure and fees can be found at the Postgraduate Studies page. 

Research Interests

The lab main goal is to develop and employ machine learning algorithm for the advancements of science and technology and improve people well-being.

The specific aims of the lab are:
  • To investigate how regulatory elements in DNA sequences can be effectively modeled and predicted using machine learning  techniques;
  • To design and develop novel predictive algorithms and employ machine learning techniques (deep learning neural networks) to enhance the modelling and representation of data in various problem domains;
  • To understand and predict human behavior and performance for promotion, recruitment, and selection etc. 
We have made contributions to the understanding of content feature associated with regulatory elements using genetic algorithm and supervised techniques such as support vector machine and ensemble algorithm.
