NEWS (10/2019):    I have a funded PhD Position for explainable AI and CyberSecurity.
NEWS (04/2019):    I will be a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at Cardiff University this November.

Tingting Li is currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in CyberSecurity with Centre for Cyber Security Research at Cardiff University, and holds an Honorary Research Fellow position at Imperial College London. Prior to joining Cardiff, she was a PostDoctoral Research Associate with Prof. Chris Hankin at the Institute for Security Science & Technology, Imperial College London. She obtained her PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence from University of Bath under the supervision of Dr. Julian Padget and Dr. Marina De Vos. She also received her MSc degree in Computing at Imperial College London, and her Bachelor degree in Information Security at Xidian University, China.

Tingting’s research interests are Artificial Intelligence and its integration into CyberSecurity solutions. The research goals she has been pursuing are to develop AI techniques and adapt them to provide an intelligent defence to protect critical industrial control systems (ICS), cyber-physical systems and IoT systems from cyber attacks. In order to achieve that, She has applied traditional AI techniques to implement smart risk assessment and optimal network hardening, as well as using the latest deep learning techniques to realise fast and accurate intrusion detection and AI-enhanced stealthy attacks.
