Willingness to take PhD students: Yes


I’m a Professor in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. At Edinburgh, I currently also serve as the Director of Institute for Computing Systems Architecture (one of the six research institutes within Informatics). Before joining Edinburgh, I had a two-year postdoctoral stint at the UCLA Computer Science Department in the Mobile Systems Laboratory headed by Prof. Rajive Bagrodia. I earned my PhD in Computer Science in 2004 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where my advisor was Prof. Samir Das. I have previously held visiting researcher positions at ETH Zurich and at Ofcom London. I’m a Distinguished Member of the ACM and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
