This is an exciting time for a researcher in security. The information technology has  become an essential part of our daily lives. New applications, new platforms, and new infrastructures spring up rapidly bringing along new and increasingly challenging security problems. My research activities are motivated by my interest towards finding practical solutions to security problems that can be implemented in the industry and towards the understanding of basic problems in security.

I'm heavily involved in R&D research with local and international industry partners. Through these R&D research activities I'm able to provide a hands-on, experiential work model that integrates research and education enabling my students to succeed in the their future endeavors.

Industry partners
