Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo holds a Ph.D. from Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Prior to starting his Cloud Technology Endowed Professorship at UTSA, Raymond spent five years with the University of South Australia, and five years with the Australian Government. He was also a visiting scholar at INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation between October 2015 and February 2016, and a visiting Fulbright scholar at Rutgers University and Palo Alto Research Center in 2009. His research focuses on big data analytics, cyber security (offensive and defensive) and digital forensics. His research has been widely cited, including in government reports of the Australian Government, UNODC, US CRS Report for Congress, ITU, and UK Home Office. One of his published cryptographic protocols was included in two independent submissions to the IEEE 802.11, the working group setting the standards for wireless LANs, by computer scientists from Fujitsu Labs in America and the IETF / Network Working Group by a team of computer scientists from Tropos Networks (US), Toshiba, Huawei, and University of Murcia. Another of his published protocol was used in the P2P solution of the Milagro TLS presented to the IETF by researchers from MIRACL Ltd in 2016. His published design principle about how session keys should be constructed in cryptographic protocols was cited in NIST SP 800-56A and its subsequent versions (Revision 2, 2013, and Revision 3, April 2018). In 2015 he and his team won the Digital Forensics Research Challenge organized by Germany's University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. He is the recipient of the 2018 UTSA College of Business Col. Jean Piccione and Lt. Col. Philip Piccione Endowed Research Award for Tenured Faculty, Outstanding Associate Editor of 2018 for IEEE Access, British Computer Society's 2019 Wilkes Award Runner-up, 2019 EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (JWCN) Best Paper Award, Korea Information Processing Society’s Journal of Information Processing Systems (JIPS) Survey Paper Award (Gold) 2019, IEEE TrustCom 2018 Best Paper Award, ESORICS 2015 Best Research Paper Award, 2014 Highly Commended Award by the Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency, Fulbright Scholarship in 2009, 2008 Australia Day Achievement Medallion, and British Computer Society's Wilkes Award in 2008. He is also a Fellow of the Australian Computer Society, an IEEE Senior Member, and Co-Chair of IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee’s Digital Rights Management for Multimedia Interest Group. He has filed two Australian PCT and one Australian provisional patent applications, and three U.S. provisional patent applications.
