I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Research on Engineering Software Technologies (CREST) research group, School of Computer Science, University of Adelaide, Australia. I am passionate about research, eager to learn new things and explore the area of software engineering, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence. I am interested in applying natural language processing and machine learning in software engineering and cybersecurity. I completed my Ph.D. from the same research group in collaboration with CSIRO's Data61 Distributed System Security Group, Australia, in December 2020. In my Ph.D., I particularly worked in the security orchestration and automation domain, which is focused on providing architecture support for security orchestration and automation systems using advanced software engineering technologies. Security orchestration and automation aim at integrating different types of multivendor security software used by security operation centers to automate and accelerate the security incident response process. The research has leveraged existing software engineering, analytical reasoning, natural language processing, machine learning tools, and techniques to develop an intelligent self-adaptive security orchestration and automation platform.
