Research Associate

My Research Vision

The rapid increase in computational power, digital networks and connectivity in road vehicles and city infrastructure (Smart Cities) coupled with new connected sensor technologies (Internet of Things) is providing new opportunities to engineer systems that solve existing and emerging socioeconomic issues. I believe that it is important to ensure that new technology is safe and secure to use in an accessible and natural manner. Connected cars and autonomous vehicles are high impact technologies and there are theoretical and proven cyber threats to such systems. My research in this area will increase the knowledge available to improve automotive systems security.


Dan obtained his first degree from Coventry and was particular inspired by the influence of Ken Stroud and his work on programmed learning and engineering mathematics. Dan had a successful career as a software engineer leading project teams on high value industrial and financial services projects. Dan was looking for a new challenge and returned to Coventry for a Masters in Forensic Computing. The University's modern facilities and ambitions inspired him to consider research as one way to contribute to the wider society and perform very interesting and challenging work. The Masters and the University's ambitions lead him to the current opportunity to perform doctoral research in the important growth area of automotive cyber-security.
