Biography

My main area of development currently is the broad area of Information Systems Security (information security, computer security, access control and identity management, information security management), in terms of research, teaching, and academic enterprise (which I see as an integrated whole, not as separate activities). This includes technological aspects, organizational/management aspects, and particularly the interface between the two. I have also worked extensively in the application of IT the Built and Human Environment, with a particular interest in the use of IT in process integration. I am also heavily involved in the Euro 2.9M EU funded Digital Environmental Home Energy Management System (DEHEMS) project, which aimed to improve the current monitoring approach to levels of energy being used by households, with an overall aim of reducing CO2 emissions across Europe.

Teaching

Software engineering, Information security, Information security management, Information security technology (applied cryptography, access control, intrusion detection, penetration testing, firewalls, etc.)

Research Interests

Applied IT (use of Information Systems to address real-world problems, e.g. energy management, construction integration).  Information security. Information security management.
