Academic interests

My main academic interests are on security and privacy related problems, focusing on security in critical infrastructures (traffic, energy and smart-grids) as well as privacy enforcement mechanisms, access control, intrusion detection and usable privacy and security. I have teaching and supervision experience at Bachelor and Master level since 1998, and PhD level since 2017. Course subjects focus on ICT, with some guest lectures in Renewable Energy. Course subjects include:

  • Information security

  • Data communication

  • Operating systems and system programming

  • Client/server programming

  • Directory services and database administration

  • Web mining and data analysis

Current courses:

I am currently teaching the following courses at UIA:

IKT 439 Information Security

DAT204 Data Communication
