Research Profile

Paolo Palmieri

Biography

I am a Lecturer in Cyber Security in the Department of Computer Science at University College Cork. I hold a PhD in Cryptography from the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), and I have previously been a Visiting Researcher at the Università di Bologna (Italy), a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), and a Lecturer at Bournemouth University and Cranfield University (UK).

Research Interests

Most of my research work in cyber security focuses on cryptography and privacy, but I also enjoy working on broader interdisciplinary topics such as smart cities.

My research interests space from cryptographic protocols to privacy and anonymity, and include privacy enhancing technologies, secure computation, location privacy, and the security of smart cities and the Internet of Things.

I am always looking for motivated students interested in contributing to the research of our group.
