Emil Lupu

Emil Lupu is Professor of Computer Systems in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London where he leads the  Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research and the Resilient Information Systems Security Group (RISS). He serves as Associate Director with the Institute for Security Science and Technology and is the Deputy Director of the PETRAS IoT Security Research Hub – Cybersecurity of the Internet of Things.

His research interests focus on the cyber security and resilience of systems including their physical, digital and human characteristics and their ability to continue operating even when they have been partially compromised. Emil has made numerous contributions in the area of policy-based network and systems management and security  including the Ponder and Ponder2 policy systems, policy analysis refinement, deployment, implementation and learning.

He serves on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service ManagementJournal of Network and Systems Management and the International Journal of Network Management, and on the program committee of numerous conferences.

Emil obtained his PhD from Imperial College London and his first degree from the ENSIMAG (Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Informatique and Mathematiques Appliquees de Grenoble).

His publications can be found on Google Scholar and DBLP.

Federico Morini

Federico received his MSc in Engineering in Computer Science from University of Ferrara. He has newly joined the group, starting the journey towards a PhD. At the moment he is reading on various aspects of Adaptive Network Security.


Luis Muñoz González

Luis is a Research Associate in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. He received his PhD from University Carlos III of Madrid (Spain) where he proposed novel Gaussian process models for non-stationary and heteroscedastic regression. His background includes machine learning and cyber-security. His current research interests are adversarial machine learning and security risk assessment with attack graph models. You can find more details about his current research activities and contact information at his personal web page, Google Scholar profile or Researchgate.



Rodrigo Vieira Steiner

Rodrigo has recently started a PhD in our group. He is currently interested in techniques for monitoring and improving the integrity and resilience of wireless sensor networks.


Erisa Karafili

Erisa joined us after a PhD at the University of Verona and a Post-Doc at the Technical University of Denmark. She will be working on Data Sharing Agreements and Argumentation and Logic Programming techniques applied to Security.


Jukka Soikkeli

Jukka joined the group as a PhD student on the HiPEDS CDT.
His current research interests are improving the resilience of partially compromised networks, and network forensics.
Jukka holds an MSc in Computing Science from Imperial College London, and degrees in economics from the University of Oxford and the University of St Andrews.

Javier Carnerero Cano

Javier joined the group as a PhD student in April 2018. He received his MEng in Telecommunications Engineering and his MRes in Multimedia and Communications from University Carlos III of Madrid (Spain). He is currently interested in the investigation and evaluation of Machine Learning algorithms in adversarial settings.


Kenneth Co

Kenny joined the group as a PhD student in April 2018. He received an MSc in Machine Learning from Imperial College London and an MA in Mathematics from Johns Hopkins University.

His general interests fall within the intersection of cybersecurity and mathematics. His current research is on the security of machine learning algorithms, primarily adversarial machine learning. He also dabbles a bit in cryptocurrencies and distributed ledgers.
