I’m happy to consider Ph.D candidates who are passionate, focused and motivated towards conducting research in the area of Computer Networks and Network Security. See my research interests section for detailed research interests. Available PhD positions are advertised in www.jobs.ac.uk and/or in our University webpage:
(select appropriately depending on how you would like to be funded).
Please, note that when applying you need to prepare a research proposal in an area you are interested, so that the University can clarify to which group/people should your application be forwarded. Then, potential supervisors determine, whether you have appropriate skills and a deep interest for research in an area compatible to the supervisor’s interests.
Note that applications seeking funding are considered by the admissions team, rather than me, considering many strong applicants.
Please do NOT send me emails with your C.V., personal statement, transcripts etc, but rather apply after clicking on the above link.
