Information and Security research

Research Theme Champion: Dr Farshid Amirabdollahian (School of Computer Science)

Information is vital to innovation in a rapidly changing world. With the advancement of information and communication technologies, an ever-increasing large volume of data contributes to solutions addressing societal challenges such as health and demographic change and ageing, food security, and clean energy.

The wide-spread use of Information Technology in every sector of life highlights the value of this commodity which necessitates its security. The theme of information and security encompasses strong research in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, algorithms, and biocomputation, as well as cyber security, biodefense and civil protection.

This page gives you direct access to some of our key projects and offers links to the Research Centres and Groups, degree courses, PhD opportunities, news and public engagement that come under the Information and Security research theme.
