Dr Manos Panaousis

Associate Professor in Cyber Security

Dr. Panaousis is an Associate Professor and member of the IoT and Security (ISEC) research group. His expertise is on cyber security strategy and privacy challenges. He employs mathematical modelling, optimisation and game theory to investigate strategic behaviours of defenders and attackers. He derives optimal responses through novel theoretic models and development of corresponding decision support tools instantiated in realistic case studies. He is currently P.I. for the H2020 CUREX project on cyber security risk management and P.I. for the H2020 SECONDO project on cyber security economics. Through successful research and development bids he has secured approximately £1M fund and contributed, as a co-investigator to another £1M.

Dr. Panaousis has received the BSc degree in Informatics and Telecommunications from University of Athens, Greece, in 2006 and the MSc degree in Computer Science from Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece in 2008, and PhD degree in Mobile Communications Security from Kingston University London, UK in 2012. Prior to the University of Greenwich, he was a Senior Lecturer in Secure Systems at the University of Surrey and member of the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS). 

He has also held appointments as a Senior Lecturer in Secure Systems at the University of Surrey and Senior Lecturer in Cyber Security and Privacy at the University of Brighton; invited researcher at Imperial College; postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London; and a Research and development consultant at Ubitech Technologies Ltd in the Surrey Research Park. Dr. Panaousis has successfully organised the 6th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security (GameSec 2015) in London, I served as the Technical Program Committee Chair (jointly with Tansu Alpcan, University of Melborune) of GameSec 2016 (7th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security). Gamesec attracts original submissions in the area of analytical security and privacy with an emphasis on game and decision theory. He is also a reviewer for leading journals by the ACM, IEEE, Elsevier, registered expert with the European Commission and EPSRC reviewer.
