I am a software and cybersecurity researcher, interested in the engineering of software intensive systems that are dependable, usable and useful. My research is particularly concerned with the engineering of software that cuts across digital, physical and social spaces. I worked as an academic and researcher at Imperial College London (Head of Software Engineering Laboratory and Founding Director of its Centre for System Requirements Engineering), The Open University (Director of Research in Computing), and the University of Limerick (Chief Scientist of Lero, and SFI Co-PI on Lero, ENABLE, and Confirm programmes). I hold a Royal Society-Wolfson Merit Award and a European Research Council Advanced Grant on Adaptive Security and Privacy.

I am interested in the developing software-intensive (digital) security systems for cyber-physical and socio-technical systems. I am interested in developing and applying modelling and analysis techniques to support the construction, delivery and operation of secure systems, systems that are privacy aware, and systems that are forensics ready. My research group and I have developed so called asset-centric and topology-aware techniques for protecting a variety of ‘smart’ spaces, including social spaces such as homes, work spaces such as buildings, and urban spaces such as cities. In the context of the Confirm Centre, I am interested in extending and applying some of these techniques to managing the security of factories and the supply chain. I am also interested in way in which cyber-physical technologies can collaborate to achieve security goals, and we are developing ‘collaborative security’ techniques for this purpose. Finally, my group and I are investigating techniques for evaluating and ensuring compliance to (security and privacy) policies, regulations and standards in particular projects, systems, organisations and broader jurisdictions. Our work sabs a number of application domains such as aviation (including drones), sustainability (including food security), healthcare (including community care), and policing.

My research groups funded form a variety of sources including the European Union (ERC), SFI (Lero, Confirm, and ENABLE), EPSRC (UK), and industry. More details on selected projects are available from our group websites: http://sead1.open.ac.uk and http://spare.lero.ie.
