Who Am I

I’m a student of Master of Philosophy at the University of Adelaide, Australia. My research interests include Computer & Cyber Security, Machine Learning-related Security and Blockchain Security.

Before I started my MPhil research, I have been working as a Software Engineer for more than 8 years, and I’ve been leading a dev team for over two years.
