I am an Associate Professor at KTH, Stockholm, in the School of Electrical Engineering and its Communication Networks division. I am also affiliated with the ACCESS center. My research is concerned with security for networked systems. Wireless security has been a main work theme, and other research interests are privacy, mobile computing, and networking.
Short biographyI earned my PhD from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. After being a post-doctoral fellow at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, USA, and a scientist at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, I joined the faculty of KTH, Stockholm, Sweden.
Research projectsRecent activities include secure ranging/distance bounding and localization, security and privacy-enhancing technologies for vehicular communication systems, location privacy, formal reasoning on wireless security protocols, and wireless sensor network secruity. Detailed information on past and on-going projects is here.
Teaching and student information
I will be teaching courses on the security of networked systems, open to undergraduate/MSc as well as PhD students. Detailed information is available here. For MSc thesis topics, please see the "Student projects" section. If you are interested in working with me for your PhD, please look at the "Open positions" section.
I have been involved in a number of venues, such as IEEE INFOCOM, ICNP, and ACM ASIACCS, Mobihoc, WiSec. I am also an Area Editor for the ACM MC2R journal. More details here.
