Short Biography

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Networking and Cyber Security in the School of Engineering and Information Technology at Federation University Australia. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University. My research mainly focuses on Cryptology, CPS Security, SCADA Security, Network Security, and Multimedia Security. I have research collaborations with peers from academia and industry on the topics of Smart Grid Security, Intelligent Transportation Systems Security, and the Usable Security for Mixed Realities. I was formerly the Chair of Professional and Career Activities for IEEE Queensland Section.

I completed my PhD in Applied Cryptography at Griffith University in 2015. My PhD thesis focused on an exploratory topic about the confidentiality problem of 3D content in augmented and virtual realities. I completed my postgraduate studies (with Honors) in Telecommunication Engineering in the field of Applied Cryptography, and also completed my undergraduate studies (with Honors) in Biomedical Engineering in the field of Bio-electronics.

Throughout my academic journey, I have been awarded multiple times for Academic Excellence, University Contribution, and Inclusion and Diversity Support. I have also been recognized as a national talent for academic excellence. I have three years of experience in industry prior to my PhD studies.
