    Personal profile


    After having obtained his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Exeter in 2007, specialising in theoretical dynamical systems with singularities, he accepted a position as algorithm tester and research specialist at a medium sized software development company. His main responsibility was to create, test and documents state-of-the-art statistical algorithms to analyse big datasets.

    He then moved to the newly created Dublin IBM Research Lab to carry out research mainly in the field of knowledge discovery, text mining, and mathematical modelling, where he gained valuable business and research experience through collaboration with several scientists both at IBM, and at academic institutions. He was involved in a number of research projects in collaboration with other IBM Research Centres and academic institutions

    He then joined Coventry University to take up a position as Teaching Fellow, and subsequently the University of Derby as a lecturer, during which he was involved various multi-disciplinary projects focussing on mathematical modelling, algorithm design, and big data analytics.

    In 2016 Marcello joined the Computer Science Department at Edge Hill University as a senior lecturer and he was subsequently recently awarded a Professorship in Computer Science.
