Dr Mastaneh Davis


I obtained my PhD in Pure Mathematics in 1999 and from 2002 to 2008 I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow investigating the application of Mathematics and numerical methods.

In recent years, I have been actively and continuously engaged with research and teaching in the domain of cryptography, Digital Forensics and I have particular interest in threat intelligence and implementation of various cryptography algorithms in mobile security. 

I am actively involved with professional bodies and have membership of the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), Fellowship of the Higher Education Academic (FHEA) and Fellowship of the Institute of Mathematics and its Application (FIMA).
