Dr Angelos Marnerides

Lecturer in Computer Networking


Dr. Angelos K. Marnerides is Lecturer (tenured Assistant Professor) in Computer Networking in the School of Computing & Communications (SCC) at Lancaster University, UK. Dr. Marnerides is an academic member of the Networking Group in SCC, a member of Security Lancaster and also a member of the prestigious Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research at Lancaster University (ACE-CSR). Prior to his current post, he was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the department of Computer Science at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. In the past, he held postdoctoral appointments in the ECE department at Carnegie Mellon University, USA, in DCC at the University of Porto, Portugal and in SCC at Lancaster University, UK. He also held visiting researcher appointments in the SCC, Lancaster University, UK, and the EE department at University College London (UCL), UK.

Dr. Marnerides has extensive research experience in the area of network resilience with particular interests in network security and smart-grid security for a range of scenarios in the context of the backbone Internet traffic, malware/botnet detection, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI), and vehicular-to-grid networks. His research philosophy is in designing algorithms and systems with strong theoretical foundations and in providing practical data-driven implementations that are deployable in the real world. Throughout his career, his research has been funded by several bodies in the UK (EPSRC, Innovate UK, GCHQ), the EU (FP6, FP7, H2020), the US (NSF) and Portugal (FCT). He has been a member of the IEEE since 2007 and served as a Technical Program Committee (TPC) member as well as a TPC track and workshop co-chair for several top IEEE conferences including IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE CCNC, IEEE WoWMoM, and IEEE GLOBALSIP. Dr. Marnerides has published a number of papers in prestigious IEEE conferences and journals and he is also a patent author. Moreover, he has been invited to serve as an external reviewer for various research project proposals (e.g., Chilean national commision), top-tier journals and conferences. Within SCC, he is the International Teaching Partnership (ITP) Scheme Director for SCC with Sunway University, Malaysia and also an academic advisor for the Grizedale College at Lancaster University. He holds an MSc (Distinction) and PhD in Computer Science from Lancaster University, UK.
