Research interests

My research spans cyber security and software engineering. I focus on novel software modularity techniques that underpin software that is adaptable, evolvable and resilient in the face of changes and the volatile nature of user requirements and behaviours in the modern digital world. This naturally ties in with my cyber security research which focuses on developing tools and techniques that are adaptable to the constantly changing threat patterns utilised by criminals online. I am particularly interested in security of cyber-physical systems, such as, industrial control systems and Internet of Things. I am also a keen researcher of adversarial and non-adversarial behaviours pertaining to cyber security. I head the Cyber Security Group at Bristol, lead projects as part of the UK Research Institute on Trustworthy Industrial Control Systems (RITICS) and UK Research Institute on Science of Cyber Security (RISCS), co-lead the Security and Safety theme within the UK Hub on Cyber Security of Internet of Things (PETRAS) and am a member of the UK Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST). I also lead a major international effort on developing a Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK) to provide much needed foundations for education and training programmes. Prior to joining the University of Bristol, I was co-founder and co-director of the Security Lancaster Institute at Lancaster University.
