Christos Dimitrakakis is a senior researcher (Marie Curie Fellow) at the artificial intelligence laboratory at EPFL, Switzerland. His research interests are reinforcement learning, decision theory, applied statistics, stochastic optimisation, multiagent systems and telecommunications. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leoben, Austria, the University of Amsterdam the Netherlands and FIAS, at Goethe-University Frankfurt, in Germany. He holds a Bachelor degree from the University of Manchester and a Masters degree from the University of Essex. After a stint at Atmel corporation he obtained his PhD from EPFL in 2006, while working at the IDIAP Research Institute in the small, but charming, town of Martigny. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
Tom Karygiannis is a senior researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. His responsibilities include developing standards, metrics, tests, and validation tools to promote, measure, and validate security systems, particularly for new and emerging technologies. As a senior researcher at NIST, Tom has conducted research in secure electronic commerce, wireless security, network intrusion detection, mobile device security, RFID security, and ad hoc network security. Tom has served on expert panels organized by DHS, DNI, DARPA, NSF, the Department of Commerce Office of Technology Policy, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the Department of Transportation, the Defense Information Systems Agency, and the National Security Council's Critical Infrastructure Protection Office. Tom holds a PhD in Computer Science from the George Washington University and a Master and Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Bucknell University. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
Aikaterini Mitrokotsa is a senior researcher (Marie Curie fellow) at the LASEC group in EPFL. Formerly, she held positions as a postdoctoral researcher in TU Delft and as a visitor assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Free University (Vrije Universiteit) in Amsterdam. In 2007, she received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Piraeus in Greece. She has been active both in European and National research projects while she has been awarded the Rubicon Research Grant by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship. Her main research interests lie in the area of network security, intrusion detection systems, privacy-preservation, denial of service attacks and machine learning and decision making applications to RFID, fixed, wireless ad hoc and sensor networks security, as well as distance bounding protocols. She is a senior member of the IEEE.
