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.
My research falls in the area of cybersecurity and digital forensics. Currently, my work focuses on : (a) smartphone security and privacy, (b) IoT security, (c) Android memory forensics, (d) web security and online fraud prevention, and (e) intrusion detection.
Please refer to Google Scholar Profile for an up to date list of my publications.
