Dr Chuadhry Mujeeb Ahmed

Lecturer In Computer Security

Computer and Information Sciences

Personal statement

I am a Lecturer in the Computer and Information Sciences Department at the University of Strathclyde. I completed Ph.D. in Information Systems Technology and Design at the Singapore University of Technology and Design under the supervision of Professor Aditya Mathur, Professor Jianying Zhou and Professor Martin Ochoa.

My research interests are in the security and privacy of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), Communication Systems and Critical Infrastructures. Previously, I have proposed non-cryptographic techniques to authenticate devices in an Industrial Control System (ICS). One such example is, exploiting sensor measurement noise, otherwise an undesirable feature into a fingerprint of a sensor. Our recent work has highlighted the challenges in applying machine learning to CPS security and awarded the best paper prize at ACM CPSS workshop 2020. We are working towards solving those challenges, including Causal Inference, ML metrics for time series data and attack vs fault analysis in autonomous systems. Besides, we are working on exciting ideas related to side-channel based threat and defense technologies. For example, we have used sounds produced by machines in an industrial plant to hack it. If this sounds interesting to you do get in touch, we are always looking for self-motivated individuals for Ph.D. and Postdoc positions. More information on my personal website.

Looking for PhD students.
