Dr Chao Chen is currently a Senior Lecturer in Cybersecurity at College of Science and Engineering. He received his PhD degree in Information Technology from Deakin University in 2017. From 2016 to 2018, he worked as a Data Scientist at Telstra to create customer value from huge and heterogeneous data sources using advanced analytics and big data techniques. He then worked at Swinburne Unversity of Technology as a Research Scientist from 2018 to 2020. He is conducting interdisciplinary research between cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI), such as AI for cybersecurity and security issues in AI models. He has published more than 20 research papers in refereed international journals and conferences, such as IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (TIFS), Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) and ACM Asia Conference on Computer & Communications Security (ASIACCS). One of his papers was the featured article of that issue (IT Professional Mar.-Apr. 2016).
