Personal profile


Simon Parkinson is a Lecturer in Informatics within the school of Computing and Engineering at the University of Huddersfield. He received a first class degree (hons) in Secure and Forensic Computing from the University of Huddersfield. Following this he gained a PhD entitled the Construction of Machine Tool Calibration Plans Using Domain-Independent Automated Planning also from the University of Huddersfield.

Simon's research interest is in developing intelligent systems for manufacturing and cyber security. This involves his continuing research of developing and utilising artificial intelligence for task automation. His research interests are cyber security focussed as cover aspects such as access control, vulnerability and anomaly detection, learning domain knowledge, mitigation planning, and software tools to aid situation awareness
