Dr. Changyu Dong

Senior Lecturer In Security, School of Computing, Newcastle University

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing at Newcastle University. My research interests fall under the broad heading of cyber security, e.g. applied cryptography, trust management, data privacy and security policies. My recent work focuses mostly on designing practical secure computation protocols with applications to large scale privacy preserving data processing. The application domains include for example privacy preserving medical data analytics, secure cloud computing, privacy preserving data mining and private data processing in mobile and wireless networks.

Before coming to Newcastle, I was a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde, before that a  post-doctoral researcher in the Policy group at Imperial College London. I received my PhD and MSc from Imperial in 2009 and 2005 respectively. I received my BSc degree from Fudan University in 1999. I also worked several years as a network engineer back in China.
