to the academic website of Stephen W. Neville, PhD, PEng (BC)
I am an Associate Professor of Software Engineering
in the Department of
Electrical and Computer
Engineering at the University
Additionally, I am the founding Director of the Faculty of Engineering's provincially supported Centre for Advanced Security, Privacy, and Infromation Research (ASPIRe Centre), as well as being heavily involved in the Entreprenurial Engineeering Master's Progam, which is supported via the Alacrity Foundation and Wesley Clover.
I am also one of 15 founding academic members of NSERC's coast-to-coast cyber-security focused Strategic Network - the Internetworked Systems Security Network (ISSNet), which involves 20+ industry/government partners including the Government of the Province of British Columbia.
primary research focuses on industry- and government-applied research in the areas of:
- Enterprise-scale cyber-security and cyber-privacy
- Software engineering and, particularly, software scalability issues,
- Data analysis and data sciencee, i.e. of software engineerin data, wireless data, medical data, etc.
- Cloud and high peformance computing, including the cloud resoure management,
- Wireless and machine-to-machine systems.
The common theme underlying these reseach areas is:
"Builing the tools and understanding necessary to quantitaively engineer the larger-scale software, IT, and data analysis systems upon which modern societies are coming to depend upon".
My research areas build and make extensive use of the theorectical disciplines of: statistical signal processing, random processes, statitsical pattern recognition, ergodity theory, measure theory, game theory, aritificial intelligence, and software engineering, with much of my active research being industry-collaborative, i.e., projects that at the end-of-the-day must provide real industry percieved value.
Much of my research involves using substaintial computing
available either through my own InSPiRe lab which contains closed-facility research cluster or via HPC resources provided via West Grid and Compute Canada.
