Dominic is Dean of the Faculty of Computing, London Metropolitan University. His research covers neural computing methods for data mining, processing language, and modelling interaction such as in virtual learning environments. He has supervised twelve PhDs to completion and was the neural network specialist on a five-year (1995–2000) UN/NERC/DoE-funded crops data analysis project involving fifteen countries. He has also received funding from JISC, BT Research Labs, KTP and EPSRC Case Studentships. He was Editor of the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Elsevier Science London, in 2001–02, and has published about 80 papers overall, with some best paper commendations at international conferences. Invited keynotes have included presentations at the European Simulation Multiconference, 2003; the 10th Intl. Conference on Engineering Applications of Neural Networks, 2007; the WSEAS Intl. Conference on Neural Networks, Sofia, 2008; and the 5th IFIP Conference on Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations, 2009. Publications include articles in many journals, such as IEEE Transactions in Neural Networks, Neurocomputing, Connection Science, Ecological Modelling and Information Sciences.
