Prof. Mark Gasson

Mark Gasson is a senior research fellow at the School of Systems Engineering, University of Reading, UK. He obtained his first degree in Cybernetics and Control Engineering in 1998 from the Department of Cybernetics at Reading where he also subsequently worked as a researcher, obtaining his Ph.D. for work on interfacing the nervous system of a human to a computer system in 2002. His current research predominantly focuses on user-centric applications of emerging technologies, with specific focus on pushing the envelope of Human-Machine interaction.

Dr Gasson is active in research concerning technical, social and security aspects of ambient intelligence and the underlying enabling technologies (such as RFID and biometrics). This has been pursued in the interdisciplinary FIDIS project (www.fidis.net) where, among other activities, he has edited reports on 'A study on PKI and biometrics' (http://www.fidis.net/resources/deliverables/hightechid/#c1785) and 'Biometrics in identity management' (http://www.fidis.net/resources/deliverables/hightechid/#c2057). Mark has expertise in the role of biometrics in identity management and identity management systems, especially in relation to effects resulting from the combination of biometrics with other technologies such as RFID (for example European ePassport) and data mining.
