Biography

Souleiman Hasan is a Lecturer in information systems at Maynooth University School of Business. He previously was an adjunct lecturer, and postodoctoral researcher in the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, and the Lero Software Research Centre, at the National University of Ireland, Galway. He earned a PhD in Computer Science from the National University of Ireland, Galway.

His research focuses on Business Data Analytics with a special interest in problems that require unstructured business analytics (e.g. text in organizational wikis), unsupervised and interpretable analytics (e.g. features learning, lack of labelled business data), multiview analytics (e.g. text and multimedia describing two views of customer behaviour in customer relationship management), and loosely-coupled information systems (e.g. data exchange with no or little organization between agents). 

His research has appeared in academic venues such as the Computer Journal, the ACM Transactions on Internet Technology Journal, IEEE Internet Computing, ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware Conference, ACM Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems, the European Conference on Information Systems, Academy of Management Proceedings, the International Conference on Persuasive Technology, and others.

His teaching experience includes undergraduate and postgraduate modules. He teaches MI616- Contemporary Issues in IT, and MI617-IT Skills and Capabilities (MSc in IT Enabled Innovation), and MN204- Introduction to Management Information Systems (Undergraduate). 

Research Interests

My research interests are in business analytics problems with a focus on the following angles:
  • Unstructured business analytics (e.g. text in organizational wikis, document management systems, customer reviews, image and multimedia customer feedback, etc)
  • Unsupervised and interpretable analytics (e.g. applying business analytics in contexts where labelled business data are not available, learning features from data where feature engineering for products, customers, transactions, is costly or unfeasible)
  • Multiview business analytics (e.g. text and multimedia describing two views of the same business phenomenon such as customer behaviour or feedback in customer relationship management)
  • Loosely-coupled information systems (e.g. decentralized ecosystem of business agents having no or little organization in a data production and consumption environment such as an open data ecosystem or a smart city)
