Dr Matthew Broadbent

Lecturer in Computer Networks and Networked Systems

Research Overview

My research interests are broadly focused around the intersections of computer networking, security and multimedia. The research I have conducted in these areas has focused on the application of software-defined networks and flexible infrastructures; an emerging research topic that has garnered much attention from both academia and industry. I have established a research theme around the utilisation of these technologies as a tool to aid service delivery, including video distribution and network security. This has included building numerous prototypes, and evaluating them at-scale in international research facilities.
