I am always looking for outstanding PhD students who are passionate about computer security. I am particularly interested in supervising highly-motivated PhD students to work on the following areas:
- Internet of Things Security
- Malware Analysis
- Virtualization Security
- Trusted Embedded Systems (e.g., TPM and SGX)
- Mobile Security
The ideal candidate should hold (or expected to achieve) a Master's degree in addition to a Bachelor's degree at UK Upper Second Class Honours Level, in Computer Science or Engineering, and should possess good practical skills (e.g., C, C++, Java, Python). Please note that I'm not supervising part-time students.
Information on how to apply for a research degree are available here. Please also have a look at the PhD entry requirements, available here.
Information about funding at Royal Holloway ISG are available here and here. Some funding are also available through the Royal Holloway Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security, at this link.
In case you wish to contact me about this, please include in your email a research proposal, your curriculum vitae, transcripts, and examples of work that you have done (e.g., conference papers or MSc/BSc thesis).
