Welcome to my website. I am an Associate Professor at the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology.
[Masdar Institute is a new graduate research university established in collaboration with MIT. The first semester of classes started in Fall 2009, and I have actively contributed to its development since joining in Summer 2008. Sustainable technology cluster is being developed in Masdar City as a part of the Masdar Initiative.]
My current research interests include:
- requirements engineering (with emphasis on strategy and economics),
- systems architecture (with emphasis on software and sustainable systems such as smart grids), and
- systems privacy and security (with emphasis on crypto currencies and secure smart grid infrastructure and trading).
I lead the Strategic Requirements and Systems Security Group (SRSSG) at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology.
Previously, I worked at Lero – the Irish Software Engineering Center and Vienna University of Technology. I received my PhD and MMath degrees in Computer Science from University of Waterloo, Canada; and my double BSc degree (Honors in Mathematics, Honors in Computer Science) from Bishop's University, Canada.
