Personal profile

Academic Background

Temi is an Associate Professor of Computing Sciences at the School of Computing Sciences, University of East Anglia (UEA). Prior to Temi's current appointment at UEA, he was a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Nottingham Trent University where he was the Course Leader for MSc Computer Science, and the MSc Research Project Coordinator. From September 2016 to May 2020, he was a Senior Lecturer in Computing at the Department of Computing, University of Worcester, where he was the Research Excellence Framework (REF) Coordinator and Research Group Coordinator for the Applied Computing Research Group. 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. From June 2012 to September 2015, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and then as a Lecturer in Mobile Communication at the University of Kent. 

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. He holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education from the University of Keele and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

His Teaching interests are in the areas of

  • Web Technologies
  • Mobile Application Development
  • Internet of Things

Temi's 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), machine learning 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. Temi aims to contribute to interdisciplinary research work in these areas.
