Researcher in Cybersecurity
Skype ID: c.lal
I am interested in all the aspects of systems and network security, privacy protection, and traffic engineering in wireless networks. Currently, I mainly focus on: (i) Design and analysis of Blockchain-based solutions for Healthcare and Digital Forensics domains, and (ii) identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities that lead to various security threats in current as well as next-generation wireless networks. Particularly I am interested in the followings:
Network (e.g., IoT, SDN, VANETs, and ICN) Security and Machine Learning
Blockchain Technologies and Smart contracts
In past, I was actively involved (technical and administrative activities) in the following EU projects:
European Commission, H2020-SU-SEC-2018, LOCARD - Lawful evidence collecting and continuity platform development (H2020 2019-2022).
European Commission, ICT-08-H2020, COLLABS - A COmprehensive cyber-intelligence framework for resilient coLLABorative manufacturing Systems, 2019-2022.
European Commission, H2020-ICT30-2015 (Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects), TagItSmart! - Smart Tags driven service platform for enabling ecosystems of connected objects, 2016-2019.
European Commission, EU-India Research and Innovation Partnership, REACH - Rural broadband internEt Access using Cooperative mesh networking in witHe spectrum, 2016-2019.
