Emmanouil (Manos) Panaousis

Associate Professor of Computer Science

University of Greenwich

I am an Associate Professor at the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, University of Greenwich, since 2019. I am also the Cyber Risk Lead of the Internet of Things and Security Centre (ISEC), IEEE Senior Member, member of the EPSRC Associate Peer Review College, and Associate Editor of the IET Information Security journal. Before, I held appointments at the University of Surrey, University of Brighton, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University London, and Ubitech Technologies Ltd.

My research interests are in cybersecurity, including IoT security, security economics, and intrusion detection, using mathematical optimisation, game theory, and machine learning. My core expertise is in designing and implementing robust defences against adversarial behaviour.

My research is funded by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Research Institute in Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RISCS), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the European Commission (H2020), and the Greenwich Research & Enterprise (GRE).

My most recent project roles include principal investigator of the (GRE funded) SecurityBudget project (a web portal for cyber risk auditing and investment advice); principal investigator of the (NCSC funded) MERIT project (cybersecurity investments for SMEs); principal investigator, for Greenwich, and work package leader in the H2020 CUREX project researching (cyber risk management for secure health data exchange); principal investigator, for Greenwich, and work package leader in the H2020 SECONDO project (security economics with use cases in AI-enabled smart environments); and co-investigator of the (EPSRC funded) CHAI project.
