I am an Early Stage Researcher at FORTH and a fellow of RAIS ITN project, working on the topic "Mitigation of Cyber Attacks in wearable Devices". I am also a PhD student at the Computer Science Department of the University of Crete.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Information engineering and my Master's degree in ICT for Internet and Multimedia (with a final grade of 110/110 with honors) from the Department of Information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Padova.
Information Security, Machine Learning, Network Analysis and Simulation, Game Theory, Optimization
The emergence of new data-driven technologies for the Internet of Sports creates new ways of helping people in their everyday activities, but on the other hand it also raises privacy concerns with regard to their sensitive data. Nowadays, most of the IoS data are sent from users’ devices towards proprietary clouds and databases, where users lose control over them. The main topic of my research at FORTH, within the RAIS project, consists in assessing the privacy risks related the use of these centralized systems in the Internet of Sports domain, with a focus on wearable devices, and evaluating the possible countermeasures. Moreover, I study decentralized alternatives that reduce such risks without impacting on the efficiency of IoS services.
