I have been a Principal Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth since 2002 and I am the Course Leader for the online MSc in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics.
I have been researching parallel and distributed systems since 1987. My research interests include multithreaded architectures; mobile networks and business process modelling; parallel and distributed processing; wireless networks and sensor networks; network security; embedded systems; simulation and modeling; and mobile intelligent agent technology.
Since joining the University of Portsmouth, my work has been focused on mobile agent architecture for fault management and detection in conventional and wireless networks. Our research has shown that statistical filtering approaches are more interesting than artificial intelligent methods for fault detection based on mobile agents.
