Room Number: Engineering, Eng E105


Research Interests:

My research interests are in developing the next generation architectures for cloud computing that can handle grand challenge problems in using big data to analyse and solve energy related problems, digital healthcare systems, safer and smarter cities, global counter-terrorism and efficient use of the emerging GPU processing power. In summary, I am interested in cloud technologies, software defined networking (SDN), content delivery network (CDN), network functions virtualisation (NFV), big data, data analytic, middleware, TV White Space, digital economy and next generation of graphics processing units (GPUs). 

For students who are interested in doing PhD under my supervision, Please see details here.


Gokop completed his PhD in Grid Computing at Cranfield University UK in 2009 and also has a B.Tech and MSc in Computer Science and Information Technology respectively. He worked as a Computational Scientific Grid Specialist at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) which is located within the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Didcot,  Oxfordshire UK from 2009 to 2011. He did his postdoctoral fellowships at Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) in Qatar and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia between 2012 and 2014. Gokop joined Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in September 2014 as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). He is the module organiser of Cloud Computing and Middleware in the Joint Programme (JP) with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in China where he teaches cloud computing, middleware and software engineering to Internet of Things (IoT) Engineering students. Gokop is an Oracle Certified Professional (OCP), Java Certified Programmer (JCP) and a professional member of the British Computer Society (BCS) and IEEE Computer Society.
