His research interests are in developing enhanced data mining methods for detecting patterns in space-terrestrial phenomena and uncovering their potential impact on human livelihood. He works in interdisciplinary research consortia with a general focus on knowledge discovery from multi-faceted data (KDMD) for tackling global challenges and sustainability.
His recent work include modelling spatio-temporal data dynamics in the big data era and their practical consequences on KDMD; characterising, documenting and archiving distributional properties of clay soil chemicals in Southern Africa and developing a balanced regulatory frameworks for knowledge transfer partnerships (KTP).
His research ethos is built on the foundations of interdisciplinary research – a basis for using science, technology and innovation (STI) in transforming human livelihood through sharing data, technical tools and skills; liaison with policy makers; grooming of young scientists and researchers and the promotion of data open-access.
Kassim has active and long established research collaborations with researchers from various institutions across the world and he is on editorial boards of several international journals and data repositories. He has undertaken a wide range of consulting tasks for various clients across the world - they include developing an innovation index for a high street British bank; a data-driven index for a long term manufacturing strategy of a Gulf-based Engineering firm and a particulate emission index for a large engineering firm in South Yorkshire.
