Biography

Dr. Muntadher Sallal is a lecturer in Cyber Security and researcher in Bournemouth University Cyber Security Research group (BUCSR).

Prior to joining Bournemouth University I have served as a Lecturer in Cyber Security in Nottingham Trent University/UK , Research Fellow in Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS) /UK, and prior to that working as a Part time Lecturer at School of Computing at the University of Portsmouth /UK.

My research background focuses on Distributed ledger technologies (DLT) in IoT and e-voting systems to preserve security, privacy, and trust. Recently, I have also started working on integrating DLTs with SDN aiming to overcome security and privacy limitations in SDN platforms.

My current research also includes blockchain with machine learning, integration of blockchain with several digital services, and security evaluation of different blockchain consensus protocols. I have developed my research with the goal of improving the effectiveness, efficiency, scalability, security, and safety of distributed ledger technologies...
