Dr Jose Miguel Such is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Informatics at King's College London. Previously, he was a lecturer in Cybersecurity in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. He holds a BSc in Computer Science, a MSc in Artificial Intelligence, Pattern Recognition and Digital Image, and a PhD in Computer Science, all of them awarded by Universitat Politecnica de Valencia.

His research focuses on intelligent approaches to cybersecurity, with a strong focus on privacy, identity management, and access control models. In particular, he has been actively contributing to the field of intelligent access control models for social networking services by: Developing an abstract model of access control for social networks based on the intimacy among the participants and the privacy loss of sharing items; Proposing new intelligent software tools that can help users to define their privacy policies in social networks requiring little intervention from them; and Proposing automated mechanisms for detecting and resolving conflicts for shared items in social networks.

He has also contributed to the field of computational models of trust and reputation with an identity model based on the concept of partial identities. This model is able to avoid the well-known identity-related vulnerabilities of trust and reputation models, which make them vulnerable to different attacks that can put the whole system into jeopardy, such as Whitewashing and Sybil attacks. He also proposed models and actual infrastructures to secure and preserve privacy in agent platforms, being able to integrate them into two particular agent platforms.
