With more than a decade of research experience within both academia and industry, I have co-authored 70+ research papers and submitted about 20 co-authored Japanese patent applications. My research is based on a user-centric view of privacy; and computational trust as an information security paradigm in an increasingly knowledge-based connected world. I like building things to solve real-world problems.
Outside research and problem solving, I am keen on photography, videography and the associated travels.

Beyond paper presentations
Associate Tutor (2004 – 2010)
Between 2004 and 2010, as an Associate Tutor at the University of Sussex, I have had teaching duties in the following courses in the (erstwhile) Department of Informatics and in the Department of Engineering and Design.
My duties as an Associate Tutor included laboratory supervision, marking, course design and occasional lecturing at the postgraduate level.
Sometimes some of these undergraduate courses are taken by Masters students too.

My name Anirban is a Bengali name, which means a light that shines forever. It sounds a bit like: aw-nee-r-baan. However, as Bengali is not a language with strict intonations, many variations of the pronunciation by non-Bengali speakers still make sense. In Katakana (Japanese), it is written as バス オニバン (note that the family name is written first).
The following is my short biography for inclusion in publications, such as academic journals. Journal editors, please copy-and-paste and/or edit as you see fit.
Dr. Anirban Basu is a Researcher at Hitachi R&D in Japan, and a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Sussex. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science (2010) and a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) in Computer Systems Engineering (2004) from the University of Sussex. His research focusses on a user-centric view of privacy; and computational trust as an information security paradigm in an increasingly knowledge-based connected world. His work has generated over 70 refereed publications and about 20 co-authored Japanese patent applications. He is particularly active within the IFIPTM computational trust management community.
