Dr Antonis Michalas

I received my PhD in Network Security from Aalborg University, Denmark and I currently work as a lecturer in Cyber Security at the University of Westminster, London. As a lecturer (assistant professor) 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. 

In addition to that, I am leading the cyber security research group at the University of Westminster. As the head of the cyber security research group, I lead research projects focused on network security and cryptography. The group comprises PhD students, professors and researchers. We mainly focus on applied research in security and privacy of widely deployed communication networks.

Prior to that, 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, privacy preserving protocols in participatory sensing applications and privacy in eHealth systems.
