Background and activities
Dr. Andrii Shalaginov is working as an Associate Professor at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK), he is a member of the NTNU Digital Forensics group and the NTNU Malware Lab. Andrii's expertise lies in the development of new methods to protect against cybersecurity threats using advanced data analytics. The main aspect is the intelligent processing of data pieces that further can be used for building AI models to defend infrastructure as well as preserving digital pieces of evidence.
Current Research Interensts
- Malware Analysis
- Digital Forensics
- Big Data Analytics
- Machine Learning
- Internet of Things
Andrii obtained his PhD in Information Security in 2018 from NTNU. This research project included the development and proof-of-concept demonstration of the 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 is experienced in system architecture and software engineering. In 2010-2011 he worked with Samsung R&D Center on Human-Computer Interaction Projects on embedded devices for the Android platform.
