I am Associate Professor at University College Dublin at the School of Computer Science and a funded investigator at Lero - the Irish Software Research Centre. I am also the Director of the UCD MSc in Cybersecurity.

I am part of the SPARE research group.

My research interests include requirements engineering and adaptive systems. My work has focused on using runtime models to engineer complex systems, including cyber-physical systems, in order to satisfy their security requirements, and ensure that they are forensic-ready and comply with data protection regulations.

If you are interested in doing research about secure software engineering and have a passion for making things concrete and not just on paper, drop me a line. Several thesis topics, as well as smaller projects are available around the following themes: secure software engineering, engineering forensic-ready software systems, requirements engineering.
