Md Sadek Ferdous
I am a Research Fellow at the Electronics and Computer Science of the University of Southampton in a Horizon 2020 cloud security project called SUNFISH. In this project, we are investigating how Ethereumbased blockchain technology can be exploited to increase the security in a cloud federation.
I was a Post-doctoral Research Assistant at the School of Computing Science of the University of Glasgow in which I was involved in a project called the Integrated Multimedia City Data (iMCD). This was part of an ongoing ESRC funded Urban Big Data Centre, Glasgow under the umbrella of Big Data Theme. I was responsible for conducting research and developing systems for collating a large collection of textual and multimedia data from online news sources, microblogs, social sharing sites such as Youtube & flickr and wearable sensors such as life-loggers and GPS devices and then to analyse this data set to make sense.
I was a SICSA (Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance) funded PhD student at the University of Glasgow. My thesis title is User-controlled Identity Management Systems using Mobile Devices in which I investigated how modern smartphones, ever increasing in power and size, could be used for managing our online identities. My primary supervisor was Dr. Ron Poet and secondary supervisor was Dr. Gethin Norman.
