Supervisors in Information Technology, Monash University
Xiao is currently a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. He obtained his Ph.D. from Swinburne University of Technology. His research lies in the security analysis of the Android operating system and its apps, including analyzing the security mechanisms of the Android framework, potentially harmful behaviours of Android apps, and privacy leaks of Android apps. His recent research has a special interest in evaluating mobile health (mHealth) apps regarding their security and privacy.
I am a Lecturer in the Department of Software Systems and Cybersecurity at the Faculty of Information Technology. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from the University of Auckland in 2019. Before joining Monash University, I was a Post-Doc researcher in the Large-Scale Data & Systems (LSDS) group in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, UK.
My research sits at the intersection of Human Computer Interaction, Science and Technology Studies, and Participatory Design. I am particularly interested in how creative, critical and participatory design methods can inspire and enable social and environmental sustainability with marginalised groups (e.g. women and children). I am currently focusing on two research areas in my role as a research fellow within the Digital Equity and Digital Transformation Group. Firstly, I am part of the PROTIC project leading research exploring the role if ICT in empowering domestic workers in Bangladesh.
