    Dr Edoh has experience in computational modelling, predictive analytics, software reliability as well as performance analysis of distributed computer systems.

    His research areas include modelling large complex real time computer systems, DSS predictive algorithms and data re-representation techniques in medical application and Agile Embedded Systems Development. He is a visiting lecturer to Universities in Germany, China, Ghana, Greece and USA;



    Dr. Aloysius Edoh PhD, MPhil (CS), MSc (IT), BSc (Eng), PGCertHE, received BSc Hons degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering at the Belarussian State Technical University and had an Associate Degree in Electronic and Telecommunication in London (UK).

     

    Dr Edoh was awarded MSc in Information Technology (IT) at UEL, after conducting research on Middleware Technology with Dr Richard Anthony his supervisor. He continued his studies at City University, London, UK where he was awarded Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Computer Science. Whiles at City University, he taught Database, Software Development using UML and Business Information System (BIS) as tutorial lecturer. Aloysius studied briefly at University College London (UCL) Health Informatics Department, before he was appointed a full time lecturer at UEL. Aloysius continued his research and was awarded PhD in Computing and Technology.

     

    Before moving into academia, Aloysius worked as an Electrical/Electronic Engineer at Ghana Railway and became the Chief Mechanical/ Electrical Engineer, where he managed many International projects to the sum of over 50 million Dollars from World Banks among others. He then worked as a Railway Computer consultant at Crown Agents Company Ltd, Sutton UK and later as a Project Engineer/ Research Analyst with the Holdtrade Trading International, London, UK. Dr Aloysius Edoh is a senior lecturer at the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering (ACE) and a member of the Distributed Systems and Software Engineering Research Group.
    Dr Edoh is a member of British Computer Society (BCS), Follow of the Higher Educational Academy (FHEA) and member of the Institute of Electrical/Electronic Engineer MIEE (aka IET) in UK. Aloysius has developed many Engineering and Computer Science modules and participated on the development of many programmes, which are taught in UK and many counties. Dr Edoh is a visiting lecturer to Kaserlutem Applied Technical University in Germany, Institutions in China, Greece, Ghana and OPNET academic team in USA;

    Dr Aloysius Edoh is the programme leader for BSc (Hons) Computing, where he manages the progression and the activities of students doing BSc (Hons) Computing and BSc Information Technology. He is a recruitment academic officer, who has travelled to Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana for academic and recruitment purposes. Aloysius has been a member of the School Quality Committee for many year and he is currently a member of School collaboration committee.

     

    Dr Edoh is an Academic Advisor and the link tutor for overseas partner Institutions, which includes Kazan State University, Greece and Ghana Institutions. Aloysius was the Erasmus coordinator for UEL and the Health Informatics Department of Amsterdam University, Holland. He is an external examiner for the MEng degree at Kaserlutem Applied Science and Engineering University, Germany.

     

    He is a member of the BCS Health and Agile groups. Aloysius is also a member of the IET, Railway, and computer technology and Health groups. Oracle middleware and database group and OPNET academic research group.

    Overview

    Aloysius research interest include Data Re-representation techniques, risk predictive analytics for clinical decision support systems, which was introduced to him by his UCL lecturer Dr Paul Taylor of the Health Informatics Department. His PhD thesis, which is based on this concept proved that most of current Internet based heart pressure predictive systems (CVD) give erroneous values because incorrect predictive algorithms are used by the epidemiologists. (See e-book)

    At City University, Aloysius developed intelligent software agent based computational model for e-commence operation. He used in idea being to combine a variety of 'risk equations' developed by epidemiologists into an overall measure. Dr Edoh has published many papers and ebooks documents; He has published in journals and conferences papers such as IEEE conference and Springer. Again, he is Member of program committee of international conferences, for example the Security at Thessoinolski.

    Dr Edoh was one of the main researcher on the team that worked on the £50,000 Diagnostic Feedback tool for Virtual Learning Environment Higher Education Funded by the Council for England (HEFCE) E-Learning Fund.
    Aloysius is a member of the BCS AGILE group and has a Scrum agile Project Management Certificate; London
