Dr Kayes Kayes Lecturer in Cybersecurity, Comp Sci & Info Tech

Dr A. S. M. Kayes is currently a Lecturer in Cybersecurity at LaTrobe University, Australia. He is the Coordinator for the Masters of Cyber Security Subjects and developed new PG subjects: cyber algorithms and secure programming. He has extensive teaching experience at postgraduate and undergraduate levels in the areas of Information and Communication Technology, Software Engineering, and Cybersecurity. He has been working as an Academic in Computer Science since 2006 and has more than 13 years of teaching, research and software industry experience. Recently, he has been elected to the position of "La Trobe University Academic Board, 2020-2021".

He received his PhD in Software Engineering from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia in 2014. He worked at CQU and Swinburne as Lead Lecturer, Lecturer and Tutor (2014-2017). In Feb 2017, he joined as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at La Trobe University, and in Jan 2018, he joined as a Lecturer in Cybersecurity at La Trobe University. His research interests include security and context-aware access control, information modeling, cloud and fog security, IoT security, data privacy, and so on. He is currently supervising many PhD students in the broader domain of cybersecurity.

Dr Kayes published his research work in top IEEE/Elsevier venues, such as Journals (The Computer Journal, Information Systems Journal, Computing Journal, Future Generation Computer Systems Journal, Journal of Big Data, First Monday Journal, IJWGS Journal, and so on) and Conferences (CAiSE, CoopIS, ICSOC, WISE, HICSS, IEEE AINA and IEEE TrustCom). He served on the research tracks and review panels of many prestigious journals and conferences, as editor, track chair, session chair, technical PC member and organizer. He is a member of the Australian Computer Society and IEEE Computer Society. Very recently, Dr Kayes has been trying to connect a bridge between Australian and South Asian Universities for research and teaching-related matters. A recent success of his attempt is a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony between North South University Bangladesh and La Trobe University Australia.

Dr Kayes received several research grants: (i) a collaborative research fund from Manchester Metropolitan University UK in 2019, (ii) an industry fund from Aiculus through Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) Australia in 2019, (iii) another Australian Industry Grant in 2020. Currently, he is trying to receive funds from the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery and through ARC Industry Linkages and also from Australian Defence like Next Generation Technology Fund. Dr Kayes has already established a huge collaborative team through working with renowned Australian and International leaders from academia and industries from Australia, UK, USA, Europe and Asia.

Dr Kayes is looking for students to do Master by Research or PhD in the broader domain of cybersecurity, especially in the following areas (but not limited to): the privacy and security of patients' medical records, malware/ransomware detection and defence, blockchain security, piracy and intellectual property right, identifying MAP/NOMAP through dealing with child exploitation materials, context-aware techniques for modelling hackers' behaviour and mindset, cloud and fog security, IoT security, data privacy and access control, a very recent topic - 'social distancing' against COVID-19 applying a wide range of AI techniques (knowledge extraction, data mining, deep learning, machine learning, etc.), and so on.
