Martin Higgins BSc MSc DPhil

Researcher on the AMIDiNe project


Martin is a researcher on the AMIDiNe project investigating energy forecasting for industrial parks. He joins the e-research centre from Imperial College where he completed his PhD. At Imperial, Martin’s focus was in the field of cyber-security for power systems. He published 3 papers in this area with a specialisation on false data injection attacks against measurement systems and moving target style defences.

Martin is also a board member and co-founder of the Royal-Imperial Black Box (RIBB). The RIBB is an advanced analytics platform for enhanced industrial control system cyber security and received over 80K GDP pre-seed in funding from InnovateUK. Martin has a passion for power systems, cyber-security, energy policy, BJJ, and AFC Bournemouth.

Research Interests

• Energy forecasting to assist with network planning
• Anomaly detection and data-driven detection of attacks against networked systems
• False data attacks against networked systems these include power networks, gas networks, water networks or even social networks.
• Moving Target Defences i.e. how networked systems can be used to protect themselves

Current Projects

AMINDE Project - Forecasting of energy load consumption from industrial parks.
