Dr. Rezvan Pakdel


I am currently working as a Post Doctoral Researcher on a project related to open source and reuse.

I completed my PhD in the MISL, University College Cork, Ireland. My research is about Big Data analytics.

I have got my master degree from Malaysia (UTM). My master research topic was ENHANCEMENT OF CAPTCHA SCHEME BASED ON USABILITY AND RELIABILITY FEATURES, which is a security method in network and Internet to check that a user is human and is not a robot.
