Short Bio:


I'm a Research Scientist (permanent faculty) and deputy head of the SECAN-Lab within the Computer Science and Communications Research Unit (CSC/FSTC) and associated with the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg. I hold Dr.-Ing. (Doctorate in Engineering) degree with distinction from the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. My doctoral thesis "Anonymous Communication in the Age of the Internet" was awarded the KuVS prize ([1], [2]) for the best doctoral dissertation 2010 from the German Computer Science Society (GI) and VDE Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE-ITG), the Science Award ("Bernd-Hentschel-Wissenschaftspreis") ([1], [2]) of the German Association for Data Protection and Data Security (GDD), as well as the "Borchers Medal" award of RWTH Aachen University. I also hold Master degree in Computer Science from the RWTH Aachen University (my master thesis was in the final round of the David Kopf prize competition for the best master/diploma thesis in Germany) and Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering (with a minor in Applied Mathematics) from the National Technical University of Ukraine "Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" (NTUU "KPI").
