With more than a decade of research experience within both academia and industry, I have co-authored 70+ research papers and 25+ Japanese patents. My publications have been cited more than 1,300 times setting my overall h-index to 20 (source: Google Scholar). 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. The areas of research that interest me include, but are not limited to: computational trust systems, distributed consensus, privacy and risk, privacy preserving data mining, AI safety and causal models. I like working on complex problems that require multi-disciplinary approaches. Outside research and the related stuff, I am keen on photography, videography and the associated travels.

Beyond paper presentations
Associate Tutor at the University of Sussex
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.
Fun stuff outside (could be related to) research
Photography, videography and other stuff

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 the following and use the profile photograph with the desired aspect ratio.
Dr. Anirban Basu is a Researcher at Hitachi R&D in Japan, and a Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Sussex in the UK. 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 co-authored 70+ refereed publications and 25+ Japanese patents. He is particularly active within the IFIPTM computational trust management community.
