I am a lecturer in Cyber Security at University of West London. Prior to this, I was a research fellow at the dot.rural Digital Economy Hub at University of Aberdeen, investigating interdisciplinary research projects in healthcare, logistics and social media. I completed my PhD in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London.

I am currently looking at the use of AI techniques in data security and privacy with the following topics in particular:

  • Risk-aware access control
  • Securing data provenance
  • Sharing personal data: inferential risk, incentive and privacy

I maintain most of my publications related to cyber security in my Google Scholar page. Please drop me an email if you cannot get hold of any of my papers.  

I am looking for enthusiastic doctoral students who want to do research in data security and privacy. Please get in touch if you like to discuss any of the above research topics.
