Dr Ibrahim Bagci

Research Associate

Research Overview

I'm a researcher at School of Computing and Communications, Lancaster University, UK.

My research interests include Security and Privacy, Wireless Communications, Internet of Things and Programmable Networks. Currently, I'm working on security in programmable networks (SDN, NFV), security in wireless networks, and lightweight authentication methods using quantum mechanics.

I finished my PhD at Lancaster University in 2016 under supervision of Dr. Utz Roedig. My PhD was funded by HMGCC. I received my BSc and MSc degrees from Department of Computer Engineering, TOBB University of Economics and Technology, Ankara, Turkey, in 2008 and 2011, respectively. I worked with Prof. Bulent Tavli and Prof. Kemal Bicakci during my BSc and MSc.

During my PhD, I worked on physical tamper detection on Wi-Fi devices using physical layer information of the wireless channel; wireless sensor node fingerprinting using hardware characteristics; improving performance of security protocols in wireless sensor networks; modeling environmental properties to enable more dependable wireless sensor network applications; and efficient and lightweight authentication methods using quantum mechanics. During my BSc and MSc, I worked on lifetime optimization in wireless sensor networks concerning digital signatures, sink and event unobservability, data processing and communication, and cooperation of neighbor sensor networks.
