About me

Originally from Nigeria, Dr Arabo completed his PhD at Liverpool John Moores University, where he investigated the area of identity management in mobile ad hoc networks within MANets, and crisis management system-of-systems component composition in ubiquitous environments. He gained his MEng in computing from Swansea University in 2007.

Before joining UWE as a Senior Lecture, Dr Arabo was a Research Fellow in University of Oxford, where he works and lead a project on Connected Home Ecosystem Security futures. Dr Arabo works on security issues in ubiquitous environments, particularly concerning mobile devices, component composition and future home networks. He is also interested in identity management, context-awareness, and privacy and authentication.  IT Security consultant with BT, Research Assistant and Tutor with Liverpool John Moores University

Dr Arabo has over five years' experience in research and development within the field of network security, security of system-of-systems composition, mobile ad hoc networks, ubiquitous computing, and identity management. His research is not only academically focused, but has been done in collaboration with industrial partners, funded by the EPSRC. Dr Arabo has provided lab support and tutorials in modules within computer science (e.g. on computer architecture, computer forensics and operating systems) at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is a Professional member of the British Computer Society (BCS), committee member of Information Security Specialised Group (ISSG), a committee member of his local BCS branch, and the Young Professional Representative (YPG) of the same branch.

Dr Arabo has many international publications, book chapters, and conference papers, and has participated in top IEEE technical conference programme committees and journal reviewing. He has reviewed for the International Journal of Network Security (IJNS), is a Review Committee member of the IEEE Journal of Communications Surveys and Tutorials, and serves as technical programme committee member for IEEE ICCNC, IAPEC 2011, ISIEA, and ICEDSA. He is currently organising an invited Session on SoS Security for the 6th International Conference on System of Systems Engineering (IEEE SoSE 2011).
