I am Professor of Cyber Security, the Computer Science Department Research coordinator, and a former graduate of the University of Huddersfield. My research expertise and interests span Cyber Security and Artificial Intelligence. I have led various research and knowledge exchange projects to completion, exceeding the value of £1.2m, funded by the likes of the UK’s Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), and Innovate UK. Through my research, I have developed new ways to detect security weaknesses in access control systems, intrusions in enterprise IT systems, and unauthorised access through new biometrics such as key typing patterns and fitness devices.

I have supervised 7 research degrees (4 PhD, 3 Masters by Research) to completion as Director of Studies and a further 4 as second supervisor (3 PhD, 1 Masters by Research). I am passionate about leading research students to success and have twice been awarded the School’s `Supervisor of the Year’ (2018-19) and the overall University `Supervisor of the Year’ in 2020. I have examined 8 PhD students at both UK and international institutions.

I am an Associate Editor for IET Intelligent Transport Systems, a frequent programme committee member for leading conferences, and a reviewer for many leading international journals.

Outside of University, I train and compete with Longwood Harriers AC
