Personal profile

Personal profile

I'm a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Abertay Dundee within the Division of Cyber-Security, 
Where I act as the head of the Machine Learning group and I am also an active member of the Security Research Group (SRG). I am also the cyber-security thematic leader for the IEEE UK and Ireland Education Affairs Committee. Previously I was a PhD student and a research associate at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow.  I was  a member of the Centre for Intelligent Dynamic Communications (CIDCOM) and of the Mobile Communication (MOBICOM) groups within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE).


Research Interests

My main interests include security and privacy, in particular finding new ways to detect threats using novel algorithms for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) using off-the-shelf massively parallel architectures such as GPUs. I am also interested in Situational Awareness, Machine Learning, Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) and the Internet of Things.

I also collaborate with a number of companies, research institutes, and universities from across the world (UK, USA, Belgium, Greece, Cyprus, Mauritius, Sweden, China and Finland).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
