Mr Stylianos Savvopoulos
Research Student, Secure Systems
Qualifications: BSc with Honour (Surrey 2012)
Stylianos joined the Department of Computer Science in September 2012 as an undergraduate student in Computer Science. After graduating with an upper class 2:1 degree, he decided to pursue an MSc in Information Security at Surrey. In January 2017, he joined the Department of Computer Science's Secure Systems research group as a PhD student. His PhD topic is Security and Privacy in Urban Sensing Environments, which is being funded by the Department, with Dr Thanassis Giannetsos and Dr Mark Manulis as supervisors. His research interests include Security and Privacy in IoT, Automotive Security and Attestation techniques for embedded systems and Trusted Execution Environments. He is mostly interested in designing secure and privacy-preserving architectures, within IoT, and especially for the various end-points platforms including sensor networks (as resource-constrained embedded devices), mobile phones and vehicles. Currently, he is looking in the design and modeling of innovative techniques for fully verified secure hypervisors for embedded systems.
