Research: Computing, Media & the Arts research

Dr. Mohammad A. Razzaque (Raz) is a senior Lecturer in the School of Computing. Before joining Teesside he worked as a senior Research Fellow at the Trinity College Dublin (2014-2017) and senior Lecturer at the Faculty Computing, University Technology Malaysia (2011-2014).


He holds a PhD in distributed systems (i.e., Wireless Sensor Networks, Mobile Adhoc Networks) from the School of Computer Science and Informatics, UCD, Dublin (2008). He also holds M.Sc.  & B.Sc. (hons) in Electronic and Communication Engineering, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.


He has more than 9 years of research and/or teaching experience on distributed systems (i.e., Internet of Things, Cloud Computing) and cyber security. His research is centered on IoT (i.e., wireless sensor networks, body area networks, and vehicular adhoc networks) and cyber security. Since, 2008 he is working in these areas and successfully published more than 60 research papers in these areas. Currently, he is working on end-to-end security in IoT, Connected Healthcare (IoT in healthcare) and Topic modelling (Text mining). 

Research interests

My main research interests are:

- IoT: Middleware, Architecture, QoS, Energy management
- Computer Networks: Cross-layer design, Middleware
- Cyber Security and Privacy in cloud computing and IoT
- Machine learning (i.e., topic modelling): Text mining, Natural Language processing
