Dr Sandhya Aneja


Assistant Professor, Faculty of Integrated Technologies and Researcher, Institute of Applied Data Analytics



Dr Sandhya Aneja is working as Assistant Professor in System Engineering at Faculty of Integrated Technologies, Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD). Prior to Universiti Brunei Darussalam, she worked in Institute of Informatics and Communication (IIC), Delhi University, India.

She also worked at UBD-IBM Centre of the Universiti Brunei Darussalam during 2013-2015. During her work span at the Centre, she worked on two research projects. The first project was the Flood Forecasting system for Blue Gene/P (BGP) Super Computer, and second was, Community and Grid Friendly Smart Homes (CGFH). During projects, she was involved in the development and deployment of the model at BG/P as well as equipment, software developed for CGFH.

Now UBD-IBM Centre is restructured as Institute of Data Analytics (https://expert.ubd.edu.bn/iada) where the staff is active in working on Artificial Intelligence technologies Machine Learning, Machine Translation, Deep Learning, Data Science, and Data analytics. A lab with a high-end machine with multiple GPUs and multiple CPUs is under her which meets the demand of data size used in AI technologies.

Her primary areas of interest include Security of Wireless Networks, IoTs, High-performance computing, and Artificial Intelligence.

End-to-End security of IoTs

There are mainly two types of networks, one is Internet and other is Telecommunication network. IoT devices connect using one of these existing networks. Underlying networks are secure and thus now securing IoT devices end to end means extending the security mechanism where these devices connect. A solution for security where IoT device uses the Internet is to be explored in the project

Ph.D./Masters Programme with Major in Networks, Programming and Linux systems

Communication over wireless peer to peer network

In, a peer-to-peer wireless network, there is no hierarchy among the devices. All the devices are equal and therefore are known as peers. Each device determines what data is to be shared on the network. In peer-to-peer network, each device functions as both a client and a server. How calls may be setup in such a network, is to be explored in this project.

Machine Translation for the Malay Language

Artificial intelligence machine translation has not yet achieved the benchmark. Malay language, the language of Brunei Darussalam uses the same character set as of the English language. A project wherein data is to be formed and establish a BLEU score for Malay to the English language translation system is to explore. There are projects like- Adversarial text generation, Anomaly text sequence detection is to be studied in the context of Malay language
