Welcome! I have been working for the past years on the general topic of systems modelling and quantitative impact on dependability, i.e., availability, reliability, maintenance, performance, safety and security (plus confidentiality, integrity and non repudiation).

I am currently working at Aston University as a Lecturer in Software Engineering & Cybersecurity within the School of Computer Science and Digital Technologies.

I chiefly investigate dependability + cyber security, modelling and simulation, and Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) in smart and critical infrastructure.


One question I get a lot is "How to start working with cyber security right away?".
So, to answer this the best I can, please check out this "New to Cyber Field Manual: The Ultimate Guide to Getting Into Cyber security" or TryHackMe, a free online platform or learning cyber security.
