My research focuses on web security, data and application security, language-based security, and location privacy. I lead a team of researchers, engaged in a number of EU and national projects and collaborations with industry including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and SAP. My papers are published in venues that include conference flagships IEEE Security & Privacy and ACM CCS, and journal flagships IEEE TDSC and ACM TISSEC.
I am recipient of the Facebook Research and Academic Relations Program Gift (2016), Google Faculty Research Award (2016), ERC Starter/Consolidator (2012), Chalmers Research Supervisor of the year (2010), and SSF Future Research Leader (2008) awards.
New: PhD position on Security and Privacy of Location-Based Services
Location-based services/systems (LBS) see tremendous growth, with application from smartphones to autonomous vehicles and aircraft. This project is on rigorous techniques for security and privacy in LBS, including:
Security and privacy foundations of LBS: formal modeling and reasoning for LBS policies;
Check out our paper on opacity, where we present a formal model of location privacy.
- Application-, service-, and system-level mechanisms: enforcing security and privacy policies for LBS by such software-level techniques as information flow control (IFC), program analysis, and monitoring, and their integration with such hardware-level mechanisms as Isolated Execution Environments (IEE) and infrastructure for secure localization;
- Cryptographic techniques for LBS: designing and scaling decentralized approaches, such as those enabled by secure multi-party computation.
Check out our paper on InnerCircle, where we design and implement a protocol for privacy-preserving location proximity.
Application deadline: June 15, 2017
