Angelos K. Marnerides is an Assistant Professor of Cyber Physical Systems Security in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and a Faculty Member at the KIOS Research and Innovation Centre of Excellence, of the University of Cyprus. Prior to that he was an Assoc. Professor in the School of Computing Science (SoCS) at the University of Glasgow (UofG), UK where he led the SoCS Cyber Security research strategy as the head of the Glasgow Cyber Defence Group (GCDG). He still maintains an Honorary Assoc. Professor position at UofG.
Prof. Marnerides’ research revolves around the formalisation, design and implementation of measurement-based security and resilience mechanisms addressing challenges resulted by the intersection of the Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT) with cyber-physical systems that were traditionally isolated (e.g., Critical National Infrastructures). His research philosophy is in designing secure and resilient systems with strong theoretical foundations and in providing practical, data-driven implementations that are deployable in the real world. His research has received significant funding in excess of €5M+ from the industry (e.g., Fujitsu, BAE, Raytheon), funding bodies (e.g., EU, IUK, EPSRC) and UK agencies (e.g., UK MoD, GCHQ). He has been invited to serve as an expert reviewer in grant proposal panels and research assessment exercise frameworks (e.g., Hong-Kong RAE, Israel Innovation Authority). He holds a patent on malware detection and has published extensively in the IEEE and the ACM. In 2016 and 2018 he received the IEEE ComSoc contribution awards. He holds a BSc (Honours, Middlesex University, London, 2006), an MSc (Distinction, 2007), and a PhD (2011) all in Computer Science and held postdoctoral and visiting researcher positions at Carnegie Mellon University (USA), University College London (UK), University of Porto (Portugal) and Lancaster University (UK).
