Dr Koorosh Aslansefat


Office: 303B, Third floor, Robert Black Burn Building, University of Hull

Koorosh Aslansefat is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Hull. He received the M.Sc. degree in control engineering from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran, in 2014. He got a fellowship with Grant No. 723764 for the EU H2020 project entitled: GO0D MAN (aGent Oriented Zero Defect Multi-stage mANufacturing) from 2016 to 2018. In 2018, he got a Studentship Award from EDF Energy R&D UK to do a PhD at the University of Hull and have an industrial collaboration with EDF Energy for a project entitled: DREAM (Data-driven Reliability-centred Evolutionary Automated Maintenance for Offshore Wind Farms). In his PhD career, he managed to get the IET Leslie H. Paddle Award for being an Outstanding Researcher for his research works on Real-time dependability evaluation and the DREAM project. In 2021, in his write-up year, he became a Research Associate and as a named researcher got a fellowship with Grant No. 101017258 for another EU H2020 project entitled: (SESAME) Safe Multi-Robot Systems. In this position, he managed to get an Post-Doctoral Enrichment Award from the Alan Turing Institute for his innovative research on safety evaluation of machine learning known as SafeML. SafeML was recently recommended in the new German Industry Standard for Machine Learning Uncertainty Quantification (DIN SPEC 92005). Koorosh Aslansefat is internationally renowned for innovative research on engineering of dependable systems that includes real-time dependability analysis of complex systems and safety assurance of machine learning algorithms.
