The Trusted Networks Lab is partnered with other top groups in Australia to maximise research and real-world impact.

The key TNL partners are:

  • CSIRO’s Data61: The TNL collaborates with multiple groups in the Data61 business unit at CSIRO:
    • Distributed Sensing Systems: The TNL is engaged with several projects with CSIRO’s DSS Group, including joint PhD and postdoc supervision. The scope of the collaboration is around Cyberphysical Networks – networks that cut across the physical and digital worlds – and Observational Data Trust – around how to trust data that is acquired from physical observations. Key collaborators from DSS include:
    • Spatiotemporal AI activity at CSIRO’s MLAI FSP: The TNL has a joint project through a research fellow on spatiotemporal machine learning in this space, partnered with Dr. Peyman Moghadam.
    • Distributed Systems Security: the TNL has a joint project on federated learning in smart grids for trust and privacy with the Distributed Systems Security Group at Data61, funded by the Cybersecurity CRC. The key collaborators are:
  • UNSW – IoT Systems Team: The TNL has several active projects with UNSW, mainly around the application of Blockchain for IoT and Cyberphysical Systems for security, privacy, and trust, and in various vertical domains, ranging from energy trading, supply chains, vehicular networks, and data marketplaces. Key collaborators from UNSW include:
  • CSIRO Health & Biosecurity – Cross-Business Unit Group (C-BUG): The TNL is partnered with C-BUG on the DiNeMo project, which uses data fusion of multiple movement dataset to create mobility networks and to predict disease diffusion through the community. Key C-BUG collaborators are:
  • University of Sydney – School of Civil Engineering: The TNL works with the University of Sydney  on distributed energy management algorithms and architectures that are scalable, private, and trusted. Key collaborators from University of Sydney include:
  • Monash University – Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering: The TNL is partnered with Monash on applying blockchain in energy trading and negotiation. Key collaborators from Monash University are:
