With her keen interest in cybersecurity, Salimah changed her field of study from biotechnology to cybersecurity. She graduated from the University Of Wollongong in 2018 where she studied Computer Science and majored in Digital System Security.

Upon graduation, Salimah worked as a Research Assistant in Project ASPIRE (Advancing Security of Public Infrastructure using Resilience and Economics) under Professor Aditya P Mathur where she focused on the research of critical infrastructure security from an offensive perspective that includes performing cyber-physical attacks, creating attack vectors and validating against defence mechanisms using iTrust testbeds. She is also a part of iTrust red team.

Salimah is currently a Cyber Security Technology Engineer in iTrust. In addition, she is a SG:D Postgraduate Scholar pursuing her Masters of Science in Security by Design in SUTD. In her free time, she still executes attacks, but this time round in the form of combat sports.
