About me

I joined the Computer Science and Creative Technologies Department as a senior lecturer as of March 2017. Prior to joining UWE, I worked with Prof Jens Groth as a research associate in the Information Security Group at University College London from 2015 to 2017. Prior to that, I was at the Computer Science Department at the University of Bristol between 2011 and 2015 as a post-doctoral researcher in the Cryptography Group and then as a teaching associate.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bristol working on Cryptography & Information Security in 2012. My supervisors were: Prof Nigel Smart and Dr Bogdan Warinschi​.
I got my Master's (with Distinction) from the University of Bristol in 2007 and my MSc project on multi-authority key-agreement protocols won the best advanced MSc project in security award. See https://www.cs.bris.ac.uk/news/news-item.jsp?nid=46 about the latter.

Between obtaining my first degree and starting my Master's, I have worked for a number of years as a Programmer & System Analyst.
