Design of a Digital Twin for a Smart City’s Water System and Security

iTrust Centre for Research in Cyber Security

A digital twin is a highly accurate simulation of a real-world system. We use the digital twin of a water treatment plant to carry out automated attacks and test defense strategies for critical cyber-physical systems. Some topics of research include linking alarms in cyber-physical systems to an ongoing attack, and using a machine learning approach to generate timed attacks.


Hi! I'm a computer science student with a year of professional experience as a software developer. I've mostly worked on back-end infrastructure, with some experience in game development, front-end web development and UX design. I'm passionate about design thinking, and am eager to use my growing skillset to tackle challenges such as industrial sustainability, diversity of online communities, and the automation of critical and complex tasks.

In my personal life, I love to hike and go on canoe trips. I also play piano, but I'm a bit rusty. Some of my favourite board games include Avalon and Exploding Kittens.
