I received my PhD in Network Security from Aalborg University, Denmark and I currently work as an Assistant Professor in cyber security at the Department of Computing Sciences. Along with Billy Bob Brumley we are co-leading the Network and Information Security Research Group (NISEC). The group comprises PhD students, professors and researchers. Group members conduct research in areas spanning from the theoretical foundations of cryptography to the design and implementation of leading edge efficient and secure communication protocols. Apart from my research work at NISEC, as an assistant professor I am actively involved in the teaching activities of the University. Finally, my role expands to student supervision and research projects coordination. You can find more information on my profile and my latest activities at www.amichalas.com
Field of expertise
I have a background in diverse fields including design and analysis of secure communication protocols, cloud computing and decentralized networks, computer and network security and privacy (especially why the latter is so difficult to achieve in practice...). Throughout my career, I have developed security and privacy-preserving architectures for different types of systems and networks. My research interests include private and secure e-voting systems, reputation systems, privacy in decentralized environments, cloud computing, trusted computing and privacy preserving protocols in eHealth and participatory sensing applications.
