Bakhtiar received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. with distinction degrees in advanced computer science all from the University of Huddersfield in 2008, 2010 and 2013, respectively. Prior to his outstanding achievement, Bakhtiar has been awarded a vice-chancellor scholarship and completed 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 in 2018.
He 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 - European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project. He is also member of professional computing research communities including; British Computer Society (BCS), Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He joined the Department of Computer Science at University of Liverpool in October 2018.
Despite to his academic experience, Bakhtiar has worked in several Tech companies such as Huawei Telecommunication, ADT, ADAM ECS as Software Engineer, IT Consultant and Project Manager.
The main focus of his research is to design and validates real-time anomaly detection model and algorithm to learn from massive scale of data streams with concerns of (change in the underline of the data distributions and concept drift).
