Associate Professor of Computer Science

University of Greenwich

I am an Associate Professor (Reader) in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich. I am also a member of the Internet of Things and Security Centre (ISEC) and its Industry Liaison Lead.

My main research interests include cyber security risk management, economics of security (cyber investments and cyber insurance), game theory as applied to security, applied cryptography, intrusion detection (machine learning). Most of my work aims at improving cyber security of organisations such as SMEs and healthcare organisations. Based on my expertise and software developed within my research projects, one of my targets is to solve real-world cyber security problems and advise interested end users.

My research is funded by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Research Institute in Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RISCS), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), and the European Commission (H2020). I am also a member of the EPSRC Associate Peer Review College and an Associate Editor of the IET Information Security journal.
