Joined the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security, at Royal Holloway, University of London in September 2014.
Completed her BSc Mathematics degree at Royal Holloway in June 2013 with a First Class Honours, after which she studied MSc Information Security. She joined the second CDT cohort at Royal Holloway. Her past projects have included pseudo-random number generation, and flexibility within cryptographic primitives, focusing on the SHA-3 cryptographic hash standard.
Giovanni received a BSc in Mechatronics and Computer Engineering from University of Pavia in 2013, and an MSc in Machine Learning from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2014. He joined the CDT at RHUL in 2014.
His research focuses in applying results of the Machine Learning theory (e.g., classical Statistical Learning theory, confident prediction models) to security problems. For instance, he is developing a practical framework to provide security guarantees to network protocols with respect to a class of traffic analysis attacks (Website Fingerprinting attacks).
He also worked on improving Machine Learning-based attacks and/or proposing new defences (e.g., Website Fingerprinting, Membership Inference).
Graduated from the University of Warwick with a BSc Mathematics degree, receiving first class honours.
He is supervised by Prof Carlos Cid and conducts reserach into the development of cryptographic constructions - examples being constructions of efficient secure computation protocols and theoretical primitives such as cryptographic obfuscation.
His research interests are in game-theoretic cyber security and financial security. In particular he is interested in the role of cyber-insurance as a means to manage business risks associated with computer and interest activities. His current research is looking at means to efficiently and accurately price cyber-insurance policies. His BA was in Mathematics and Philosophy at King’s College London, with a focus on abstract algebra, formal logic and epistemology.
Completed his undergraduate and masters degrees in the War Studies department at King's College London before joining the CDT in the autumn of 2014. His research interests lie in non-technical cyber security topics pertaining to military and government applications of cyber technologies, and organisational and policy responses to cyber security issues.
He previously was awarded an MSc in Criminal Justice Policy at LSE and a BSc (Hons) in Sociology & Psychology from the University of Greenwich. His research interests are rooted in the sociology of cyber security.
Graduated from Newcastle University with a first-class honours degree in B.Sc. (Hons) Computer Science in June 2013. He joined the second cohort of Centre for Doctoral Training students in September 2014, where he is being provisionally supervised by Dr. Kostas Markantonakis.
Joanne graduated from the University of Manchester with an
degree in 2013, and joined the second CDT cohort in September 2014.
is interested in all aspects of theoretical and applied cryptography, in particular randomness in cryptography and post-Snowden cryptography.
