Research

My main research interest lies in security and trust management in decentralised systems in the context of peer-to-peer and cloud environments. I focus on usable security and explore ways to enhance the security properties of connected services by harnessing the joint capabilities of different device classes.

I am/was involved in the following research projects:

  • SEMPER – Cross-border Semantic Interoperability of Powers and Mandates EU CEF-TC-2018-1 (2019-2020)
  • SUNFISH – SecUre iNFormatIon SHaring in federated heterogeneous private clouds EU H2020-ICT-2014-1 (2015-2017)
  • weSPOT – Working Environment with Social and Personal Open Tools for inquiry based learning EU FP7-ICT-2011-8 (2012-2015)
  • ROLE – Responsive Open Learning Environments EU FP7-ICT-2007-3 (2009-2013)
