Academic Biography

Dr Mohammad A. Razzaque (Raz) is an Associate Professor (Research & Innovation) in the School of Computing, Engineering and Digital Technologiesat Teesside University. Before joining Teesside University, he worked as a Senior Research Fellow at Trinity College Dublin (2014-2017) and Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Computing, University Technology Malaysia (2011-2014).

He is an expert in cybersecurity, secure AI, generative AI and end-to-end (sensors-to-cloud) IoT solutions, and his research and development are centred on cybersecurity, secure AI and IoT. He has successfully published over 75 peer-reviewed research works (with an h-index of 30 & citations over 4k), including many Q1 journal papers (e.g., IEEE Sensors, IEEE IoT, Nature Scientific Reports) and a book in these areas. He is active in funding applications and has secured over £1M (approximately) worth of funding as the PI or a Co-I. 

Currently, he is working on secure machine learning, especially cybersecurity of generative AI and generative AI for cybersecurity, collaborating sensing for unmanned vehicles, and applications of generative AI (e.g., chatGPT, GPT). Besides, he is supervising/co-supervising nine PhD students at Teesside University. 

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

Summary of Research Interests

My current research covers three related areas: Generative AI, Cybersecurity and Privacy, and IoT.

  • Generative AI (GAI): secure and efficient applications of GAI (e.g., LLMs-GPT/Falcon) for business.
  • Cybersecurity and Privacy: secure machine learning and sensing for unmanned vehicles (e.g., drones, driverless cars), deep-fake detection.
  • IoT: Integration of IoT with digital twins, serious games and AR/VR.

PhD and Research Opportunities

I have PhD opportunities (self-funded) in the following areas:

  • Cybersecurity of generative AI or generative AI for cybersecurity
  • Secure machine learning and sensing for unmanned vehicles (e.g., drones, driverless cars),
  •  Deep-fake detection, including in digital forensics, and
  • Integration of IoT with digital twins, serious games and AR/VR.
