Brief Biography

Background

Ray obtained a B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science from University College Dublin in 2005. He then completed a PhD in 2010 on the "Real-time Structural Analysis of Online Handwritten Mathematical Expressions" under the supervision of Professor Tahar Kechadi. Since then his research interests include the fields of cybersecurity and cybercrime investigations; particularly since he joined CCI in 2011.

Research and Development

Ray now conducts research and development in various fields that include cybersecurity/cybercrime investigations and forensic/intelligence software development and testing; with a particular emphasis on Open Source and Freeware solutions. He also supervises postgraduate research students as part of his role on the FCCI program.

Ray is currently managing the FREETOOL project community. Financially supported by the EU commission, this unique project aims to develop robust validated software in the fields of digital forensics and open source intelligence. The outputs from this project are exclusively (and freely) available to the Law Enforcement community.

Training

Ray is responsible for the management, development and delivery of multiple training courses related to Digital Forensics, Cybercrime Investigations and Trainer Development, for Industry and Law Enforcement management and staff. These courses include those outlined by various EU funded projects and many other bespoke products developed as part of the long-standing relationship between CCI and stakeholders worldwide.

Lecturing

Dr. Genoe has been lecturing in third level institutions since 2006 and is currently lecturing on the FCCI program at UCD. The MSc in Forensic Computing and Cybercrime Investigations (FCCI) is an international distance-learning programme for law enforcement officers specialising in cybercrime investigations.

He is currently involved in the development and delivery of the VoIP and Wireless Investigations module. This course describes state-of-the-art investigative techniques that can be used to overcome the challenges presented by various forms of communication/network technology and security.
