We extend a warm welcome to our new Director of Knowledge Exchange, Alistair Lawson, who joins SICSA today. Alistair brings valuable experience to the role. He is a member of the Centre for Distributed Computing, Networking and Security within the School of Computing at Edinburgh Napier University and is involved in Research and Knowledge Exchange projects in the areas of software engineering, applications development, healthcare, speech and language, scalable systems, cloud computing, industry 4.0, information sharing, simulation, e-security, e-commerce, and e-learning.
Alistair will be working over the next two years to develop links between SICSA, industry, the public sector and the SFC Innovation Centres.
Alistair replaced Professor Iadh Ounis, who has worked with SICSA as Director of Knowledge Exchange for over 2 years. We would like to give a big thank you to Iadh, who has been fundamental to the success of SICSA in recent years.
