Temi received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Ilorin, the M.Sc. degree in Mobile Computing from the University of Bradford, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Kent. Following his Ph.D. in 2012, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and then as a Lecturer in Mobile Communication at the University of Kent. During this time, he was involved with 5G communications research using models, methods and tools for mobile communication systems. From September 2015 to August 2016, he was a Teaching Fellow in Computing in the School of Computing and Mathematics at the University of Keele.

His research interests include modelling and analysis of computing and communication systems such as those found in web-based systems, mobile communication systems, mobile computing systems, internet of things (IoT), and their applications in every area of public life including, finance, healthcare, wireless networks, buildings, entertainment, and related industries. His research spans the whole spectrum from technical design, through algorithms to system development and performance evaluation. More information is available on his research tab.

He is currently the research excellence framework (REF) coordinator for the Department of Computing. He is leading preparation and overseeing research developments for the REF 2021 exercise.

Modelling and Evaluation of Internet of Things for Smart Cities

There is a growing interest in the application of Internet of Things (IoT) in every area of public life including health care, transportation, security, logistics, industrial control, energy and waste management and so on. The IoT is a novel cutting edge technology that enables connection and communication of physical objects, devices, data, processes and people over the internet to satisfy the needs of our everyday lives and improve living standard of citizens. Reports indicates that in the near future, trillions of devices will be connected to the internet, gathering and sharing data.

Smart and connected cities represent one of the most attractive areas for IoT innovations with potentials to tackle key challenges such as energy savings, crime reduction, road congestion reduction and effective service delivery for greater economic growth.

However, one of the main challenges that emerges in the IoT’s data gathering and sharing is how to process massive amounts of data emanating from surrounding objects in such a way that all stakeholders, end users and businesses can take full advantage of the available intelligence. This will require enabling IoT systems with capability to collaborate, learn, analyse and interact with people effectively.

The aim of this PhD research project is to model, prototype and evaluate an IoT platform that combines machine learning algorithms and data visualisation techniques which will allow for more intelligent data gathering, processing and decision making. It will involve developing skills in databases, data mining and analytics, information representation, and mobile/web application development in order to explore and deliver the next generation smart city experiences.
