She belongs to the Center for Cyber Information Security (ccis.no) and the Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory. She is a steering committee member of Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Society, branch of the European Association for Artificial Intelligence (EurAI), member of the Norwegian Association for Image Processing and Pattern Recognition (NOBIM), and member of the Research Ethics board of NTNU. She has been supervising students at different academic levels and has been publishing more than 100 journal and conference papers. She actively takes part as programme committee member and reviewer in conferences and acts as reviewer in several journals.

Research Interests

My overall research goal is to be able to develop intelligent systems or their intelligence components which are support to humans and which can act ethically, legally and which are built such that they are secure and respects privacy of the people they are support to and in the end they have better performance while doing their tasks. I work on using and developing state of the art approaches in AI&ML in order to solve challenges in the projects and application areas. For that reason, my research has a wide spectrum of application areas (Energy, Medicine, Security etc.) and my research is revolving around AI&ML axis across application areas which is the point of integration. Hence some of the keywords of my research are as follows:

Artificial intelligence

Machine learning and its applications,

Digital crime evidence collection and crime ontologies,

Machine Learning in Image processing and its applications

Machine Learning  and use of ontologies in Document classification

Machine Learning in Biometrics
