Zubair, tell us a bit about yourself. What do you do, and what does a typical day in your life look like?
I am a senior lecturer of cyber security at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia.
I would start out a typical day in my life with a quick skim through my mailbox and prioritizing my responses based on several factors. I would then head out to my work place. If there’s a teaching commitment for the day, I would prepare for my lectures and labs and update the online course material and/or announcements for students.
I set aside around an hour to keep myself at pace with the latest research trends in my discipline. I conduct research training for graduate students and help them prepare their findings for publication. I also actively involve myself in leadership activities including coordination of courses and desigining of new course material.
