About

I am a life-long technology enthusiast with an interest in computer architecture, embedded systems, cybersecurity, cloud and Internet of Things (IoT). Energy efficiency has been at the core of much of my work in research and cybersecurity has also been a top priority for me, especially since moving to Singapore in 2017.

At JCU, I am interested in finding ways to use IoT and other technologies to help protect environments and make our lives easier too, whilst also ensuring we stay cyber-safe. I'm heavily involved in the development and delivery of our Bachelor of Cybersecurity (BCyber) programme.

Potential student projects

Students looking for research project ideas, either within their study programme, or extra-curricular, can consider contacting me about the following topics:

  • Securing biometric-enabled IoT devices against malicious use
  • Enabling the public to verify device security with a simple smartphone app
  • PKI (SSL certificates) for devices in the home
  • Home VAPT (pen testing) kit
  • Improving authentication methods to prevent phishing

Students can also reach out to me with their own ideas if they think I may make a suitable advisor/mentor.
