Ahmed Alnatheer was awarded his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. He then moved to Los Angeles to USC for his Masters in Computer Science and concentrated on Software Engineering and Architecture. After finishing his Master's Degree, he continued his studies through his PhD work in at the University of Southampton, UK focused on discovering major Security Issues in Agile Software Development.

Ahmed is currently conducting empirical research full-time on the topic of Security Issues in Agile Methodologies. He is looking into finding effective means to integrate the two disciplines of Security and Agile in order to make a more robust and seamless process for Engineers and Developers to follow. He is being supervised by two supervisors: Dr Andy Gravell & Dr David Argles.

He would very much welcome anyone to share and exchange ideas on his interested field.
