About

Hello, I'm Emir. I’m a PhD student at the University of Liverpool within the School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science where I’m supervised by Simon Maskell and Laurence Alison. I’m funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Unilever to develop decision support tools for strategic decision making through explicitly pulling on both psychology and data science.
