Bakhtiar obtained his B.Sc. in Software Engineering in 2010, and M.Sc. with distinction in Advanced Computer Science in 2012, both from the University of Huddersfield. Prior to his outstanding achievement, Bakhtiar has been awarded a Vice-Chancellor (VC) Scholarship to complete his Ph.D. in recognition of a programme of work entitled “Distributed Contextual Anomaly Detection from Big Event Streams” under the supervision of Professor Grigoris Antonio and Dr. Violeta Holmes.
Bakhtiar worked at Aston University (UK) as post-doc research fellow in the field of Smart Lighting and Energy Efficient Lighting Data Analytics for the Big Data Corridor project (European Regional Development Fund - ERDF). He joined the University of Liverpool, Department of Computer Science since 2018.
He is a member of several professional computing research communities including; British Computer Society (MBCS), Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Despite to his academic experience, Bakhtiar has worked for several Tech international companies such as Huawei Telecommunication as Software engineer, ADT as Data Scientist Consultant and ADAM ECS as Web and Mobile Application Development Manager.
The main focus of his research is to design and validates real-time anomaly detection model and algorithm to learn and predict from massive scale of streaming data in the real-time.
