Paolo Palmieri, Ph.D.

I am a Lecturer in Cyber Security at Cranfield University (UK). In the British university system, this is a position roughly equivalent to assistant professor in North America.


I earned my Ph.D. in Cryptography in January 2013, at the Crypto Group of the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium). I then moved to Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), where I was a post-doctoral researcher for 2 years, working on privacy-enhancing technologies at the Parallel and Distributed Systems group. Before joining Cranfield, I was a Lecturer in Computing at Bournemouth University (2015-16).


Most of my research work in cyber security focuses on cryptography, privacy and anonymity. My research interests include secure computation, privacy-enhancing technologies, anonymity protocols, location privacy and smart cities.
