    Research interests

    Nonso is actively engaged in cutting-edge research within the area of Multimodal Artificial Intelligence, which involves the integration and processing of information from multiple modalities or sources of data to enhance the capabilities of AI systems. This has resulted in leadership & participation in various funded research projects centered around Big Data analytics, Natural Language Processing, Image Processing, Software Engineering, Computational Linguistics, and Healthcare Informatics.

    Notably, Nonso was involved in CROSSMINER project funded under Horizon Europe (€4.5M). He led the two phased CyberSignature project which received £92K from UKRI. In a multidisciplinary project backed with £115K from the Home Office, Nonso led the development of a tool for detecting coercive control from digital communication. He is currently co-investigating a policy research aimed at understanding community well-being with administrative data from London councils (Barking, Camden and Dagenham). The project backed with £120K of funding was co-developed with policy makers and practitioners selected to participate in the 2021 British Academy and Nuffield foundation workshop on “Understanding Communities”.
