I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at City University of Hong Kong. I obtained M.Eng and B.Eng degrees from the University of Pretoria (South Africa) in 2002 and 2003 respectively, and a PhD in Computer Science with the Security Group at the University of Cambridge's Computer Laboratory in 2008. Before joining CityU I worked for the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London as a researcher/engineer at the ISG Smart Card Centre (2007-2011) and as a Teaching Fellow (2011-2013).
