Abdullah – how does it feel to pass your PhD viva and get a lectureship in Coventry University?

Congratulations to Abdullah who passed his PhD viva today. The topic of his research is Cyber Security. Abdullah had been a dynamic member of the research group from Pakistan. He has made enormous and dedicated contribution to the group driving it towards success. He has led by example publishing several peer reviewed research papers.
