M. Ikram

I am Muhammad Ikram, a Senior Lecturer in Cybersecurity at the Faculty of Science and Engineering, School of Computing, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Previously, I had the privilege to serve as a joint postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan and Macquarie University. My educational background includes a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from UNSW, where I had the opportunity to work under the supervision of Prof. Roya Ensafi and Prof. Mohamed Ali (Dali) Kaafar.

My research interests primarily focus on analysing security and privacy issues in Web and mobile platforms. In the last few years, I have been working to build techniques leveraging machine-learning algorithms to tackle security and privacy issues and fraud detection targeting online services. To get further insights into my research interests, please refer to my publications.
