I am currently a Research Fellow at the Cyber Security Lab, Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, New Zealand. At the Cyber Security Lab, I am involved with the user centric security and privacy paradigms. Before joining the University of Waikato, I worked as a Senior Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University. During my work at the Edinburgh Napier University, I worked on the RatTrap project. The RatTrap project was involved in designing a suite of preventive technologies to avoid online fraud - especially in the online affiliate marketing. I obtained my PhD in Information Security from Royal Holloway, University of London. I completed my M.Sc Information at Royal Holloway, University of London in September 2007. I also have M.Sc Computer Science from University of Agriculture, Faisalabad and B.Sc (Mathematics, Physics and Geography) from University of the Punjab, Lahore.
My current research interests revolve around the user centric applied security and privacy architectures, especially in the field of smart cards, and data security in a heterogeneous computing environment. In addition, I am also interested in smart card security, secure cryptographic protocol design and implementation, smartphone security, trusted platform architecture and trusted/secure execution environment.
