Biography

Dr Geoffrey Lund is a part-time lecturer within the Division of Cyber Security. Previously he was the Division Leader in the Division of Computing and Forensics. Dr Lund has taught a wide variety of modules over his career; from computer architecture, networking, computer programming, systems analysis and software development. In recent years he have focused on mobile phone technology and mobile web development.

Dr Lund has a PhD in Computer Science which looked at measuring the process of software development in learner porgrammers. 

Dr Lund has research interests focused on mobile applications. He embrases the philosophy that the mobile device, and the Internet, has the potential to radically change modern society and we have only started this revolution. He has been working to develop applications that do embrace these ideas. The focus of much of this work is on the security of these applications and in particular the ability to recognise the user and the users intentions in a more intelligent manner. He has supervised a PhD in this area.

Other interests include the Internet of Things and their relationship with the mobile device and mobile phone technology.

I will be teaching the following modules in session 2017/18. These are :

  • CMP306 Dynamic Web Development 2
  • CMP414 Web Futures.

In addition I supervise a number of undergraduate  dissertations within the area of Mobile Computing Applications.

My research interests are in Mobile Computing Applications and especially on the security of these applications. Smart phones and tablets are used extensivly in modern 21st century society. These are capable of a significant amount of local processing but their main advantage is the "always on" communication. This allows the device to connect to the "cloud". Thus these small devices have available to them a wide variety of data and services. The research aim is to use this technology within various applications.

Current mobile applications tend to be a "mobilised" version of a paper based on online system. Rather than re-designing the UI for the mobile, an approach looks at the whole system and suitability of mobile device will have a great impact on society. The book by Schadler et.al "The Mobile Mind Shift" is the inspiration for this work.

Security and privacy is a major concern in the area of mobile phone applications. We are working on methods to establish the identity of the phone user and the payment for items or services through the phone in a secure and private manner.

The work is application led. We are seeking to build applications to test the technology. Through this a general model of engagement will emerge. This is Application Led Research
