Research Interests

Software Engineering was the first topic to get involved into Computer Science (CS) field. I worked on variuos topics in the subject of Software Engineering including software requirement management, modelling process frameworks (i.e. BPMN and i*) and change management. Currently, I am more focusing on Data Mining, Pattern Recognition, Mining Stream Data and Time Series Representation Methods. My work is also directed at mining behavioral biometrics (authentication traits) in the context of streaming analysis.
