Research Focus

Table 1: Research Aims

Research Areas


Language and Social Media Analytics

The aim of this research is to find an advanced method in language and social media analytics to support the integration of human intelligence with machine intelligence. Huge social media data is useful to enhance situational awareness and decision support in cyber-situational understanding. The advanced methods provide deeper understanding and insights for the enhanced decision-making process.

Intelligence Modelling and Network Analytics

The aim of this research is to utilize the use of machine learning algorithms for intelligence modelling in network analytics. The algorithm shall enhance feature selection process to detect and classify network threats.

Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking

The aim of this research is to investigate advanced hacking methodologies across multiple browsers, mobile platforms, and devices in finding new vulnerabilities. The focus of penetration testing and ethical hacking has now shifted to various hacking attacks to cloud computing platforms. The methodologies should be robust, effective, and dynamic against new vulnerabilities.
