In my short career, I have amassed more than 60 prestigious journal and conference publications, have been awarded more than US$ 2.3 million in project funding, and a number of prestigious international and national awards for my work in advanced data analytics, machine learning and secure systems research, notably IEEE Outstanding Leadership Award, Capital Markets CRC Award, Emirates Foundation Research Award, and the ICT Fund Award. Most recently, I won the prestigious Samsung award for research to protect IoT devices [news].

I serve as an Editor of IEEE COMML and Journal of Big Data Research (Elsevier). I am also affiliated with the University of Sydney and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) as a Visiting Professor. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE.

My resarch interests are in the areas of data-driven intelligence, cyber defence and security and smart manufacturing.
