Sirine is a research engineer within the Data Privacy Team in the Information Security and Privacy Group at CSIRO Data61. Currently, Sirine is the main engineering manager contributing to several projects related to privacy preserving techniques.

Sirine joined the networked systems group in NICTA in 2014 where she contributed in Mobile content delivery software. She then joined the Networks group in2015 as CSIRO Data61 where she was the main research engineer contributing significantly to three major projects on Privacy preserving technologies within the Data privacy team.

Prior to joining Data61, she worked as a project manager for three years with KLS-Logistic Systems, a company dedicated to warehouse, transport management and optimization.

From 2007 to 2008, Sirine worked as a research engineer at the Research Unit in Networking (RUN) at the University of liege, Belgium. Besides assisting the Run team members in ongoing research projects development, she was responsible for the adaptation of a network positioning systems algorithm for mobility needs in Wireless and mobile networks.

From 2005 to 2007, she worked as a software engineer at INRIA Sophia Antipolis. She was responsible for the design and development of a new software platform of discrete-event simulation called OSA (Open Simulation Architecture).
