Michael Odetayo

Biography

Dr Michael Odetayo is a Principal Lecturer in Computer Science. He obtained his MSc from Imperial College, London, UK and his PhD Degree in Computer Science at the University of Strathclyde. Before completing his PhD, he worked at the Computer Centre of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria, where he led many project teams that designed and developed computer-based systems for the University as well as external organisations. After completing his PhD, he joined De Montfort University, Leicester, where he was a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science for many years before moving to Coventry University. His research areas include Genetic Algorithms, Hybrid Systems, Biomedical Intelligent Systems, Intelligent Knowledge-Based Systems, e-Commerce, Neural Networks, Image enhancement for Biometric security systems, Data Mining and Machine Learning.
