There are three PhD scholarships available. The research will be conducted in collaboration between the School of Economics and the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.
University Of Australia Queensland PhD Scholarship aims to apply game theory and mechanism design techniques to cybersecurity. There are three main themes.
- The design of incentives and mechanisms for cybersecurity: blockchain or smart contracts for financial trading; supply chain, product provenance and traceability; regulation of chain for multi-chain eco-systems; fair distribution of blockchain resources.
- Data privacy: general data protection regulation; privacy compliance for digital systems e.g., e-auctions, e-health; building systems to protect data privacy (using blockchain and trusted execution environments to balance privacy and security)
- IoT/AI: big data solutions for inequality, trust, wellbeing; fairness, robustness, security, and privacy of AI applications, (e.g., in home loans, models used by judges in the courts, etc.); data sharing, selling and trading; teaming under dynamically changing or resource constrained environments; calibrating machine trust.
A working knowledge of CMathematics, statistic, computing, economics would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
