Areas of Expertise: Computing and technology
Senir’s research focuses on exploring possible Knowledge Exchange (KTP, KEEP+) collaboration initiatives that address particular scientific challenges or bring about cost saving measures through novel use of technology in areas such as: Multi-modal binding when using AR/VR, prediction of behaviour models, true Random Number Generation and Point of Churn.
With a strong background in industry, Senir has more than 10 years of experience in teaching and research in computer related topics. His core expertise stem from applying his knowledge in Computer Science, Mechatronics and Video Games to commercial products and services, which in turn, inform his teaching.
