I am a Senior Lecturer in Cyber Security at the University of Greenwich, UK. There I have founded Cyber Assurance Lab in Internet of Things and Security Research Centre. I have received a MSc in Advanced Distributed Systems from the University of Leicester, UK in 2008 and PhD (Dr. techn.) in 2014 in Software Engineering from the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC), Johannes Kepler University, Austria, both with distinction. I was a Lecturer in Cyber Security at Surrey Center of Cyber Security, University of Surrey, UK during 2018 and 2019. Prior to that I was a Postdoc at the MIT CSAIL, USA (jointly with QCRI) during 2014-2016 and in SERG Group at the Alpen-Adria University, Austria during 2016-2018. My research has been recognised through (i) winning awards in the most premier research venues including CICM 2012, WF-IoT 2016 and ICS-CSR 2019, to name a few and (ii) winning mega research grants by distinguished international and regional funding agencies including H2020, FWF and NSF/DARPA, to name a few. I am a member of ACM and IEEE.

My research interests are in:

  • software security
  • program analysis
  • attack modelling
  • security-by-design
I am always looking for doctoral, post-graduate and under-graduate students with strong technical and research skills to work with me. If you are interested, please see list of under-graduate projects or drop me an email.
