Senior Lecturer

I am a Senior Lecturer in Computer Engineering in the Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering at The University of Limerick. I hold a B.Eng. in Computer Engineering, a Masters in Engineering in Security Protocol Design and a PhD in Formal Logics for Security Protocol Verification. I have been a University of Limerick faculty member since 1994. During this time I have graduated a number of PhD students in the broad area of network security and IoT and my students are funded from a variety of sources including: EU, SFI, IRC, Internationally and industrially funded.

My background as an embedded systems designer and programmer affords me insight into the problems that can occur with bringing Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing solutions to the Irish manufacturing sector. This same background helps me in delivering secure solutions to those same problems with other Confirm researchers.

My research interest include: Cyber Physical systems, IoT Security, Wireless Sensor Systems and Networks, Security protocol design for Data and the Cloud, Network Security, Security protocol formal verification methods, Cryptography/Encryption algorithms, Embedded system programming, Digital design, Programming languages, and Operating systems
