Short Bio

Dr. Panaousis is a Senior Lecturer (US: Assistant Professor, explained here) at the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics, University of Brighton, UK. He is affiliated with the Secure and Dependable Software Systems (SenSe) Research Cluster (i.e. Group) and he is a visiting researcher at the Institute for Security Science and Technology, Imperial College London, UK. Previously, he served as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant with the Theory Group, School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary, University of London, UK working for the Research Institute in Science of Cyber Security (RISCS) that consists of prestigious UK universities (such as Imperial College and UCL). Prior to that, he was a Research Assistant with the Wireless, Multimedia and Network Research Group, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing, Kingston University, London, UK (Aug ’12 – Jan ’13).

He has received the BSc degree in Informatics and Telecommunications from University of Athens, Athens, Greece, in 2006, the MSc degree in Computer Science from the Department of Informatics of the Athens University of Economics and Business, Athens, Greece in 2008, and the PhD degree in Mobile Communications Security from Kingston University, London, UK in 2012.

Dr. Panaousis is studying cyber security and privacy engineering and decision-making approaches from both a theoretical and practical perspective. He has expertise in developing new models within the above fields and proposing algorithms or mehtodologies to tackle emerging challenges. He also assesses any proposed solutions by either simulations (mainly by using Python tools or network event-based simulators) or real-world testbeds. In addition, he has several years of expertise in preparing EU bids and he has secured funds through successful FP7 and H2020 proposals.

Dr. Panaousis teaches cyber security and privacy (theory and penetration testing) related modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. His teaching duties also include Mathematics of year 1 undergraduate students. More importantly, he has been developing (jointly with Professor Mouratidis and Dr. Pavlidis) the MSc Information Security of University of Brighton (to commence in September 2016) where he is also a co-leader of four mandatory modules (Security and Reliability; System and Network Security; Information Security Management; Information Security project). Furthermore, Dr. Panaousis is external examiner of various MSc courses of Staffordshire University from February 2016.

After he successfully organised the 6th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security (GameSec 2015) in London, Dr. Panaousis serves as the Technical Program Committee Chair (jointly with Tansu Alpcan, University of Melborune) of GameSec 2016 (7th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security) and he is a reviewer for leading journals by the ACM, IEEE, and registered expert with the European Commission. He is also a member of the IEEE and a professional member of the ACM.

Our new MSc in Information Security is here.
