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
