Dr. Nur zincir-Heywood


I am a full professor at the Faculty of Computer Science, Dalhousie University in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I am interested in designing and developing intelligent and secure systems for modeling and analyzing different behaviours on applications, services and networks.

   Here are several interesting conferences and workshops:

Big Congratulations to Duc, Sara, and Tien for the Awards they received this year! Proud to be your supervisor :-)


What a great time we had at our first “Dal FCS Hands on Security Day”! Thanks a lot to 2Keys and Cisco for sponsoring our event on December 15, 2017! And of course, thanks a lot to all of our students who made it a day of fun with great detective work :-)

Finally, it was an honour and a big pleasure for me to give the Fall 2014 Convocation Address (Oct 6th @ 9:30 AM) this year! Congratulations to all the graduands and their family & friends!
