Academic Biography

Dr. Mohammad A. Razzaque (Raz) is a senior Lecturer in the School of Computing. Before joining Teesside he worked as a senior Research Fellow at the Trinity College Dublin (2014-2017) and senior Lecturer at the Faculty Computing, University Technology Malaysia (2011-2014).

He is an expert in end-to-end (sensors-to-cloud) IoT solutions. His research and development are centered on IoT and cybersecurity. Since 2014, he has been also working on machine learning techniques, including deep learning techniques for IoT applications and cybersecurity.

Since 2008, he is working in these areas of IoT and cyber security, successfully published more than 65 research papers and a book in these areas.  Currently, he is working on end-to-end security, including hardware security in IoT, Smart Healthcare, and Deep Learning and Blockchain for cybersecurity.

He is working as a consultant in the areas of IoT solutions and use of machine learning techniques in business for SMEs in northeast England. He also organises and conduct workshops on ethical hacking, data analysis, and IoT.

He holds a PhD in distributed systems (i.e., Wireless Sensor Networks, Mobile Adhoc Networks) from the School of Computer Science and Informatics, UCD, Dublin (2008). He also holds M.Sc. & B.Sc. (hons) in Electronic and Communication Engineering, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
