Biography

Dr Seyit A. Camtepe has eleven years of international research, teaching and student mentoring, and additional six years of industrial experience in computer network security. Dr Camtepe has produced more than 40 refereed publications in wireless sensor network security, mobile security and cyber security. His publications have received more than 1000 citations (Google scholar – Dr Camtepe). Dr Camtepe has an Erdős number of 2 (Oakland University Erdős Number Project – Erdős Number 2 scientists).

Dr Camtepe has commenced his career in the banking industry as a network and security engineer in 1996. Following six years of industrial experience and extensive training on Microsoft, IBM, Cisco, HP-UX and Checkpoint network and security technologies, he pursued his PhD study in Computer Science at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, USA. During his PhD study, he worked on security research projects funded by US National Science Foundation and US Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome (New York) covering topics key management in wireless sensor networks, attack modelling and detection, and social network analysis. He assisted the network security, and cryptography and malicious cryptography classes for five years. He received the PhD degree in 2007.

Dr Camtepe has worked as a research group leader at the Technische Universitaet Berlin, Germany, from 2007 to 2012. His responsibilities included research, research project acquisition and management, thesis mentoring, and teaching. He has led a research group composed of 2 postdoctoral researchers, 7 PhD candidates and 11 MSc students.  Together with his team, he has acquired research projects (more than 4 M€ total funding in five years) from national, international and industry sources. Dr Camtepe has taught graduate and undergraduate lectures, projects and seminars on communication network security, pervasive security and autonomous security for five years. He has mentored 7 PhD candidates starting from the first year in their PhD study. Total of 9 Diplom, 8 MSc and 6 BSc degrees have been granted under his supervision.

Dr Camtepe is currently an ECARD (Early Career Academic Recruitment and Development) Lecturer at the Information Security Institute of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science School, Science and Engineering Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Australia.

Research interests and research results of Dr Camtepe cover topics cyber security, mobile security, wireless sensor network security, and applied and malicious cryptography.
