The technical team lead of the LIIDR group - Dr. Florian Gottwalt - has received the Dean’s Award for his outstanding PhD Thesis. The research has been conducted on network-based anomaly detection whereas his results inspire further research in our team.

Dear Florian,

I am pleased to advise that you have been awarded a Dean’s Award for Outstanding PhD Theses in recognition of your PhD thesis ACNADA: A Contextual Network Anomaly Detection Approach for False Alarms Reduction and Semantic Reasoning Enhancement.

The Dean’s Award recognises high quality PhD theses produced at UNSW. The award goes to PhD graduates who have submitted a thesis that requires only minimal corrections, received outstanding and/or excellent levels of achievement for all examination criteria, and, in the opinion of both examiners, is in the top 10% of PhD theses examined.

Congratulations on your achievement, and best wishes for the next stage of your research career.

– Professor Jonathan Morris, Dean of Graduate Research
