All members of our Group are also core members of the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security.

Study with us

We offer a PhD course with individually tailored research projects. Take a look at what our students say, what funding is currently available and the research we are involved in.


One of the major highlights of our Group's past successes in applying cyber security research into the real world is the EPSRC-funded Trustworthy Voting Systems project.

This led to real-world deployment of an e-voting system in Australia's Victorian State election in 2014. Here is a short film on this work coordinated by Prof Steve Schneider, the principal investigator of the project.

Research themes

Our research is directed into a range of research themes in cyber security and data privacy.

Foundational enabling technologies

In addition to the key research activities around cyber security, members of our Group also work on other foundational and related technologies which support our cyber security research, but can also enable research in a broader context.

  • Data analytics
  • Digital forensics and crime investigation
  • Formal methods
  • Human-computer interface
