Teaching

CMT116- Cyber Security and Risk

In terms of my research areas, I am interested in combining machine learning and cybersecurity together to develop detection and prediction models to identify different categories of cyber attack. 

I am also interested in identifying cybercriminals on Online Social Network that are spreading malware and to understand factors that influence its propagation. Here I am interested in identifying malware that is produced by an organised entity or that by a single user and to examine the impact of different strategies aimed at disrupting the diffusion of malware on social network platforms such as Twitter. 

In addition to these, I am interested in identifying offline disruptive events such as crime using online social data.
