Dr BooJoong Kang
Dr BooJoong Kang is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Computer Science in the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton. Dr Kang obtained a Ph.D. in Electronics and Computer Engineering in 2013 from Hanyang University in Korea, with a thesis about machine learning based Windows malware detection. He was a Research Fellow at Queen's University Belfast, UK, from 2014 to 2021 before he joined the University of Southampton. His research is currently focused on cyber security and AI, including intrusion detection, malware analysis, Cloud & IoT security and CPS (Cyber-Physical Systems) security. He is author of more than 40 papers (h-index 15, 944 citations, source Google Scholar), published on international conferences, journals, and books.
Dr Kang investigated the intrusion detection and response system to improve CPS security aginst realistic cyber attack scenarios. This research was carried out as part of the EU FP7 project Smart grid Protection Against cybeR attacKS (SPARKS, 2014-2017, €4.8M). He was also involved in two projects as part of RITICS, the UK’s national Research Institute in Trustworthy Inter-connected Cyber-physical Systems, Converged APproach towards Resilient Industrial control systems and Cyber Assurance (CAPRICA, 2015-2017, £394K) and Cloud-enabled Operation, Security Monitoring, and forensICs (COSMIC, 2018-2021, £249K).
