I am a Lecturer of Systems Security at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London and the Director of the Aplications, Platforms, and Systems Security Research Lab (apss).
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 harass? Did you know that an adversary can take remote control of a connected vehicle's steering and braking functionality? Or how one can turn your smartphone into a spying device?
In our lab, we study such security and privacy issues, especially with respect to emerging application domains, such as smartphones and the Internet of Things. In particular, we leverage a multitude of techniques to study mobility (localization, navigation etc.) and security aspects (confidentiality, integrity, authentication and authorization) in emerging application domains. In particular, we utilize access control, optimization, machine learning and natural language processing among others to tackle prevalent threats and challenges in an ever-connected world.
