I am a Senior Lecturer (i.e. Associate Professor) in the Centre for Programming Languages and Systems (CPLS) and the Systems and Software Security Lab (S3Lab) at the Department of Computer Science, Royal Holloway University of London (RHUL). My research interests lie broadly in the areas of distributed systems, security, databases, and networking, with a current focus on cloud computing security.
Prior to joining RHUL I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Large-Scale Distributed Systems (LSDS) group at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London. I completed my PhD under Prof. Jean Bacon as a member of the OPERA group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Between my PhD and post-doc I also spent several years as a software engineer in the financial services industry building high-frequency trading platforms.
