Background and activities

Dr. Andrii Shalaginov is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Digital Forensics at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK), he is a member of NTNU Digital Forensics group and NTNU Malware Lab. Andrii's expertise lies in developement of new method to protect against cybersecurity threats using advanced data analytics. The main aspect is intelligent processing of data pieces that further can be used for building AI models to defend intrustructure as well as preserving digital evidences.

Backgroud

Andrii obtained his PhD in Information Securtiy in 2018 from NTNU. This research project included developement and proof-of-concept demonstration of advanced Neuro-Fuzzy method for Big Data problems in Digital Forensics applications. One of the contributions received aware from AI Journal. By today, Andrii holds his MSc degree in Information Security (Digital Forensics track) from Gjøvik University College (Norway), MSc in System Design from Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (Ukraine) and BSc in Information Technology from Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (Ukraine). Moreover, Andrii experienced in system architecture and software engineering. In 2010-2011 he worked with Samsung R&D Center on Human-Computer Interaction Porjects on embedded devices for Android platform.
