Dr. Mouad Lemoudden is a Lecturer of cybersecurity at the School of Computing of Edinburgh Napier University. He is also member of the Blockpass Identity Lab. Mouad Lemoudden has a research background in applying new data-centric tools to cyber security. His current research interests include cloud computing security, network security, intrusion detection, adversarial behaviours, distributed ledger technology, forensics, identity, and privacy. He is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).
Mouad is dedicated to integrating his research with teaching, as his cloud computing and distributed systems security expertise has a strong connection to the taught modules. His lectures are frequently updated to reflect the rapid evolution of the taught area. This allows the students opportunity to stay up to date recent advances. This also has a positive impact on supervision, whether it's Honours Project or the MSc Dissertation. As a result, interest in research is elevated among students, who are subsequently encouraged to carry out research.
Prior to joining ENU in 2020, Mouad Lemoudden has worked as Postdoctoral Researcher for the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (Inria), where he was involved in a Directorate General of Armaments (the French Government Defence procurement and technology agency) project that focuses on creating a research testbed for intrusion detection system evaluation and modelling digital user profiles. Dr. Lemoudden has received his PhD in Computer Science in 2017 from the Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco. His PhD research focused on managing the logs of cloud computing systems using big data techniques for cybersecurity.
Dr. Lemoudden has published several quality scholarly articles. He has also been invited to serve as a reviewer for several conferences and journals. In addition, Dr. Lemoudden has been involved in supervising Research Master and PhD students since he accomplished his PhD in 2017.
