Biography

Siraj Ahmed Shaikh is Professor of Systems Security and currently the Director of Research at the Institute of Future Transport and Cities (IFTC) at Coventry University. 

From February 2015 till May 2016, he was seconded to the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), which is the innovation network in Britain. He served as cyber security lead for the KTN coordinating activities across academia, industry and national policy. From March 2015 till March 2016, he was also seconded to HORIBA MIRA, as part of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s industrial secondment scheme.

In 2016, Siraj co-founded CyberOwl, which is a VC-backed commercial venture involved in developing early warning system for cyber threats, cyber-physical platform health and prognostics. CyberOwl is currently part of the UK’s 1st GCHQ Cyber Accelerator.

Siraj has been involved in research, development and evaluation of large-scale distributed secure systems for over twenty years. His doctoral and post-doctoral research involved design and verification of security and safety-critical systems. 

 

Vision Statement

Systems security lies at the intersection of cyber security, systems engineering and computer science. Siraj's research addresses a range of problem domains including monitoring of insider and stealthy attacks, automotive and transport cybersecurity, and software assurance. His research brings together a mix of research methods including formal methods (process algebra), (Bayesian) statistical analysis and others.
