I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing with expertise in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics.
Want to study a PhD?: I supervise PhDs in the areas of malware, cyber security, digital forensics and cryptography. Ideally you should have experience in one of these areas and be a competent programmer in a language like C or Java. If you have expertise in one of these areas and would like to refine a research proposal please get in touch.
PhD project ideas
- New techniques for identifying / preventing security vulnerabilites.
