Dr Prosanta Gope

Lecturer in Computer Science (Cyber Security)

Summary

I have received the M.Tech. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, India, in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering from National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan, in 2015. Currently, I am working as a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science (Cyber security) at University of Hull, United Kingdom. Prior to this, I was serving as a Research Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at National University of Singapore (NUS), where I was also associated with two research projects NETS, and NUS-Singtel Cyber Security Project funded by Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) Singapore, Singtel-Telecom Singapore and Prime Minister Office Singapore, respectively.

Since 2012, I have been working on the several areas of “Network & Information security, and Cryptography”, where I have done some extensive researches in designing various “lightweight authenticated encryption modes”, and “lightweight and anonymous authentication protocols” for wireless communication security by considering several practical and challenging issues.

Based on my research outcomes I have already published more than 30 SCI journals papers in several reputable journals such as IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics (Impact Factor 7.1), IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (Impact Factor 4.33), IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid (Impact Factor 6.64), IEEE IoT Journal (Impact Factor 7.58), IEEE Systems Journal (Impact Factor 3.88), IEEE Sensors Journal (Impact Factor 2.5), Computer & Security (Elsevier) (Impact Factor 2.6), Journal of Network and Computer Applications (Elsevier) (Impact Factor 2.17), etc. and also filed four patents (one US Patent, One Taiwan Patent, two Singapore Patents). In 2014, I have received the Distinguished Ph.D. Scholar Award from the National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. I am currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Sensors Journal, the Security and Communication Networks Journal , and the Mobile Information Systems Journal.
