Panos Papadimitratos

Associate Professor

www.ee.kth.se/~papadim

I am an Associate Professor at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, leading the Networked Systems Security (NSS) Group. I am also affiliated with the ACCESS center, leading its new Security, Privacy, and Trust thematic area. I earned my PhD from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. After holding positions at Virginia Tech and EPFL, for the most part, and a visiting post at PoliTo, I joined KTH and established the NSS Group.

 

Research

Recent 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. Information on past and on-going projects is here.

 

Teaching

I teach courses on networked systems security, open to advanced undergraduate/MSc and PhD students. I also regularly work with undergrads (e.g., individual study projects, first year design projects) and MSc thesis students (supervisor and/or examiner).
