Welcome to my academic profile!
I am currently a senior lecturer in the School of Computer Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia. My main area of interest is cryptography, specifically the design and cryptanalysis of symmetric-key algorithms. I will be using this website to keep track of my research progress, my career growth, as well as any bits and bobs in between.
