Research Interests

I pursue research in various aspects of dependable systems. A system is dependable if trust can be justifiably placed in its correct operation even in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances can be random hardware or software faults (bugs). So systems must be designed to be fault-tolerant. Other circumstances include malicious or worst-case system behaviour, so these systems must be designed to tolerate intentional attacks, and be made secure. I am interested in the design of such systems, from their specification to their verification and validation. Specifically, I have interests in the following areas: 1. Design of (variants of) Fault tolerance 2. Dependability in networked embedded systems, e.g., Wireless sensor networks, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems 3. Failure log analysis of cluster systems 4. Computer security/Digital forensics 5. Design and validation of dependable SW


I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick. I am a member of the Systems and Software group.
