I am the program leader for the BSc (Hons) Forensic Computing and Security.

I hold a PhD in Information and Communication Security and a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science from the Athens University of Economics and Business, as well as an MSc in Information Security from Royal Holloway, University of London. I am a Fellow of HEA and my teaching and research focuses on Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. Before joining BU, I was a Lecturer at Staffordshire University and (even) before that a security consultant working within VeriSign's PKI Trust Network. I hold more than 20 well referenced, esteemed journal and conference publications. I have served as as PC and TC member in a number of reputable conferences (e.g. ESORICS, ARES, etc.) and journals (Computer & Security, Computer, Computers & Electrical Engineering, etc.). I am a member of IEEE and ACM.
