Research interests

  • Cyber Security, in particular Network security, Systems’ security (such as decentralised systems, Cloud/edge based systems).


  • Scalability and performance in large-scale distributed systems (such as blockchains, and more specifically, consensus.


2020, the "High Performance Award" from scholl of Computing Technologies, RMIT University.


I am currnetly involvoed as CI in a CRC-P project in the area of fraud detection in digital payment systems.
