Summary

 

Summary

I am a Lecturer at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. 

Have you ever wondered how advertisers know that you are interested in that pair of shoes before you do? Have you heard about that baby monitor hacked to spy on toddlers? Did you know that researchers took remote control of a connected vehicle's steering and braking functionality? Is your smartphone a spying device waiting to be exploited? 

In my work I study such security and privacy issues, especially with respect to emerging application domains, such as smartphones and the Internet of Things. I find problems with such systems and propose alternative designs to eradicate them.

You can read more about my existing work at my personal website.

I currently have open positions for motivated PhD students excited about smartphone and IoT security. Research experience in this or similar area is preferred. If you are interested, please send me an email using “Prospective Security PhD Student” as subject.
