Professor Awais Rashid

Formerly at Lancaster University

Research overview

My research spans software engineering and cyber security. I focus on novel software modularity techniques that underpin software that is adaptable, evolvable and resilient in the face of changes and the volatile nature of user requirements and behaviours in the modern digital world. This naturally ties in with my cyber security research which focuses on developing tools and techniques that are adaptable to the constantly changing threat patterns utilised by criminals online. I am particularly interested in security of cyber-physical systems, such as, industrial control systems and Internet of Things. I am also a keen researcher of adversarial and non-adversarial behaviours pertaining to cyber security. I head the Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research at Lancaster, lead a project as part of the UK Research Institute on Trustworthy Industrial Control Systems (RITICS), co-lead the Security and Safety theme within the UK Hub on Cyber Security of Internet of Things (PETRAS) and am a member of the UK Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST). I am also leading a project on research into developing a cyber security body of knowledge (CyBOK).
