Research

My research areas are:

Dew Computing, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, and Bioinformatics.

Major contributions in Dew Computing:

·         Devised the Cloud-Dew Architecture which leads to the creation of the new research area and application area: Dew Computing.

·         Made the first group of progress in the Dew Computing area.

·         Made major contributions in the process to get the Dew Computing area recognized internationally.

Major contributions in bioinformatics:

·         ISAV/PRV Analyses

·         The Discovery of Genomic Signatures’ Determinants

Research Reflections

·         The International Journal of Cloud Computing and the whole Inderscience Publishers highly rated paper [9]. On September 15, 2015, Inderscience Publishers announced the endeavor of cloud-dew architecture to the science community in the form of a public release. Over 30 media published the news, including some media in Russia, India, Japan, Montenegro, and Colombia. These media are listed here.

·         A new research area, dew computing, was created and international workshops are held annually.

·         The 1st International Workshop on Dew Computing (July 7 – 8, 2016.  Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada)

·         The 2nd International Workshop on Dew Computing (May 24, 2017, Opatija, Croatia)

·         IEEE Computer Society reviewed this new research area, and approved to create an organization to oversee dew computing research. The name of the organization is: IEEE Computer Society Special Technical Community on Dew Computing (STCDC). STCDC was established in Dec. 2017. I was appointed as the Chair of the STCDC Committee.

·         STCDC Committee will organize the 3rd International Workshop on Dew Computing (DEWCOM 2018). DEWCOM 2018 will be held in Oct. 29 - 31, 2018 in Toronto.

·         UPEI Presidential Recognition Award of Merit for Scholarly Endeavours, 2017.

·         UEPI Annual Merit Award for Outstanding Scholarly Achievement (2016 - 2017).
