Kaniz is working at University College Cork as a post-doctoral researcher and focusing on cloud monitoring techniques, gathering and combining metrics from various layers of cloud and other topics related to cloud computing. Her Ph.D. research was conducted under EC FP7 project (Trusted Architecture for Securely Shared Services) and focused on designing an authorization system to provide privacy of personal data by having access control policies and conflict resolution policies from multiple authorities dynamically, obtaining access control rules from the legislation (EU Data Protection Directive) to provide automated decision for any request to access a personal data item, designing a component called Contract Validation Service to validate a digital contract signed by various parties to allow access to personal data mentioned in the contract which she implemented in Java using XML signature technique, testing the performance of the system by deploying it in a simple private could server. She has multidisciplinary research experiences (in Information Security and Privacy, Privacy Law, Cloud computing, Speech Processing, Machine Learning, Digital Signal Processing). Kaniz Completed her PhD at the University of Kent, UK. She obtained her M.Sc. (Eng) in Data Communications from the University of Sheffield, UK with distinction. She did M.Sc. and B.Sc. (honors) in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. She worked as a Lecturer at the Stamford University Bangladesh for 2 years and as an Assistant Lecturer at the University of Kent, UK for 3.5 years.
