I am Anthony Faustine a Senior Industrial Analytics Researcher, at Irish Manufacturing (IMR), Dublin, Ireland where I develop computational models, methods, and tools to help industries and manufacturing design more effective solutions. I have experience in applying data science and machine learning techniques to business problems with a track record in the delivery and management of AI projects in academia and industries. Between 2012 and 2017, I worked as an assistant lecturer at the University of Dodoma, Tanzania, where I was involved in several research projects within ICT for development (ICT4D). In 2017, I joined IDLab, imec research group of the University of Ghent, in Belgium as a Machine learning researcher. From 1st February 2020 to 30th March 2021, I worked as a Data Scientist and Machine learning researcher at CeADAR (UCD), Dublin, Ireland, where I devised and implemented data analytics and Artificial Intelligence technical solutions for business problems.

I am also a PhD research at Further Energy and Environment research Laboratory (FEELab), at ITI/LARSyS, Técnico Lisboa in Portugal under Prof Nuno Jardim Nunes and Dr. Lucas Pereira supervision. My research focus on developing robust machine learning algorithms for industrial applications with a specific focus on future energy systems.

My research focus on time series analysis and computer vision for real-world application with specific focus on Future Energy Systems, Industrial 4.0, Sustainable development.
