As October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Carleton experts are available to discuss related topics.

Wei Shi
Associate Professor, School of Information Technology

Phone:  613-520-2600, ext. 5060

Shi is available to discuss topics related to data privacy and network security.

Shi’s research interests include big data, distributed computing and computer networks, gaming and software engineering.

Jason Jaskolka
Assistant Professor, Systems and Computer Engineering

Jaskolka’s research interests span the areas of cybersecurity, software engineering, distributed systems, and formal specification and verification.

Jaskolka is available to discuss cybersecurity assurance and evaluation – how the security of systems is evaluated and convincing others that systems are secure. He is also available to discuss the need for security-by-design, which is the idea that systems security needs to be “built-in” instead of “bolted-on” to systems.

Ashraf Matrawy
Professor, School of Information Technology

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 2901

Matrawy leads the Next Generation Networks research group at Carleton. The group focuses on innovative networking architectures and is currently conducting research in network security and privacy, software-defined networking, Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Internet location verification.

Anil Somayaji
Associate Professor, School of Computer Science

Somayaji is available to discuss topics related to systems security, data breaches, malware and IoT security.

Somayaji’s research interests include computer security, operating systems, intrusion detection, complex adaptive systems and artificial life. He is associate director of the Carleton Computer Security Lab. His recent work delves into the importance of diversity in software and aims to explain how this strategy is different from standard practice and how it should be integrated into new software.
