Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses more on different aspects of information security; security in big data, security in IoT systems, network security, fog and cloud security, technologies that support GDPR, AI in security and malware detection, and other aspects of information security. You can see my publication in ( Please contact me if you think I can help you for your PhD.

Vision Statement

I believe to moral values. We have responsibility about our society and we should be useful in this society. Many of our problems originate from forgetting values such as cooperation, self-control, fairness, honesty, dignity, integrity, kindness, compassion, and many other values.

I like professional carrier, high quality research and teaching. I have a good feel when I share my experience with students about living in several countries for my education and career. I have seen different cultures and educational systems. I enjoy when I see students use my advice and they are successful. I talk about time management, stress management, wellbeing and other abilities that help them to be successful.
