Cybersecurity, privacy and human-centered computing
Our research specialises in large scale systems, data analytics at scale, multi-criteria optimisation and human/social computation.
Our research spans key themes, including cybersecurity, privacy, social and mobile computing, human computer interaction, parallel and distributed systems and multi-criteria optimisation and mathematical modelling.
Underpinning these key areas are issues of scale and complexity, with a particular emphasis on human/systems interaction. Much of the research is carried out in collaboration with colleagues internationally (in Europe, US, Singapore and Australia). Our work is also well linked with a number of academic schools, including Social Sciences, Mathematics, Business, Psychology and Engineering.
The research section manages the Social Data Science Lab and the Internet of Things Lab.
