Dr Naseer Al-Jawad, Lecturer at The University of Buckingham, top UK university for student satisfactionBSc (Basrah), MSc (Baghdad), PhD (Buckingham)

Dr Naseer Al-Jawad boasts an impressive academic background with a Bachelor of Science degree from Basrah, Iraq, a Master of Science from Baghdad, Iraq, and a Ph.D. from Buckingham, UK in Computer Science. His extensive teaching portfolio includes a broad spectrum of computing subjects at Baghdad University and the Applied Science University in Jordan, covering programming, data structures, file processing, and algorithms. In Buckingham, Dr Al-Jawad expanded his teaching repertoire to include courses such as Fundamentals of Computing, Multimedia Systems, and Web Technologies. Presently, he is dedicating his efforts to instructing students in Data Structure, Object-Oriented Programming, Principles of Computer Networks, and Research Method for PG students alongside overseeing projects for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Dr Al-Jawad’s research interests are varied and rich, particularly in the field of image processing, where he has contributed to advancements in image enhancement, quality, feature extraction, and content retrieval. From the Medical imaging side, Dr Al-Jawad explore his research on Breast cancer detection and Melanoma. His exploration into video processing has evolved from traditional compression techniques to the forefront of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning approaches. Moreover, Dr Al-Jawad has been at the helm of pioneering research in biometric systems, delving into areas such as face recognition, partial face recognition, gait recognition, and Arabic handwriting recognition.

His investigative pursuits also extend into networking, with a keen focus on developing Smart Home systems within the Internet of Things (IoT) framework. This includes the innovation of a Wireless Smart Home capable of adapting to a multi-user environment with varied behaviours. Currently, Dr. Al-Jawad is channelling his research towards leveraging deep learning for video compression, enhancing Smart Home IoT solutions, and advancing the field of Steganography, showcasing his commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology and computer science.
