I received my PhD in Network Security from Aalborg University, Denmark and I currently work as a lecturer (assistant professor) at the University of Westminster, London where I lead the Cyber Security research group. As a lecturer I am teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate courses related to cryptography, forensics, cyber security and network security. My role expands to student supervision and research group coordination. In parallel I am an active member of the department’s project development and research activities.
Earlier, I was working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Security Lab of the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS) in Stockholm, Sweden. As a postdoctoral researcher at the SEC Lab I was actively involved in national and European research projects and combined research with student supervision and project management.
I have published a significant number of papers in field-related journals and conferences and I have participated as a speaker in various conferences and workshops. My research interests include private and secure e-voting systems, reputation systems, privacy in decentralized environments, cloud computing, trusted computing and privacy preserving protocols in participatory sensing applications.
