Dr. Muhammad A. Suleiman


Senior Lecturer


Software Engineering; Information Technology


Block B, Room 317


I am a Senior Lecturer in the Departments of Software Engineering and Information Technology, Nile University of Nigeria. I have 15 years progressive working experience in both academic (research) and industries. For more than a decade, I have accomplished design and implementation of numerous IT and Software solutions as a senior Systems Analyst, Researcher, Consultant, and Lecturer.

I obtained my BSc., M.Sc., and PhD degrees in Computer Science and I am committed to interdisciplinary scholarships. My research interests are natural language processing, data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data mining/information retrieval, anonymous communication and privacy-enhancing technologies. I have published more than 10 peer reviewed papers and book chapters, many of which are in the area of AI modeling and anonymous communication.

I am looking for potential MSc. and PhD students that are interested in my area of research to work with.
