  • Biography/ Background

    I am an associate professor in the school of computer science and the leader of Information warfare and advanced cyber theme within the Defence trailblazer, the University of Adelaide.

    I'm leading a research group on Cyber-AI with a special focus on network fragility and security at the University of Adelaide, Australia. Our research evolves around developing autonomous and provable cyber defensive techniques for networks. This means building and configuring systems that are secure by design, not just addressing problems when they strike and training AI agents to help defend networked systems. By employing tools from graph theory, game theory and AI/ML we are able to develop practical solutions that help human operators deal with the complexity, fast-paced and deceptive nature of the cyber environments.

    Prospective students (2022-11-11): We are offering generous research scholarships (PhDs and Masters) and summer research scholarships (undergraduates) on applying Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Game Theory to solve problems in network (anti)fragility and security.

    Please contact me directly with your CV if interested.
