Research interests

My main research focuses on the engineering of trustworthy information systems. My research interests are in the area of requirements engineering and more particularly in trust, security, and privacy engineering. I study methods, tools, and techniques that support engineers in the development of software systems that are secure and protect data privacy.

Please refer to my Google Scholar page for an up to date list of my publications.

I am currently supervising: Myrsini Athinaiou

If you are interested in a PhD under my supervision and you are willing to work hard please feel free to contact me.
