I am a
mainly on (automatic) analysis of
of security in ICT and IoT (Internet of Things) as well as on aspects of
security, all with a focus on privacy.
First half of my fellowship was hosted in the
Verification of Autonoumous Systems group at Imperial College London,
and the second half is hosted in the Secure Systems group at
University of Surrey.
Until mid-June 2015, I was a security architect at Akamai. Previously, I was a Professor of Information Security at the University of Applied Sciences, Western Switzerland.
Formerly, I was a lecturer ("chargée de cours") in security and cryptography at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.
There, I also held the position of deputy director of LASEC (Laboratory of Security and Cryptography), where I worked as a senior researcher in security/cryptographic design.
I hold a PhD in formal verification of security protocols from Imperial College London, and a
B.Sc. in computing, vale dictorian, from Faculty of Computer Science, "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University, Iaşi, România.
I prefer to use just my maiden name, Boureanu, for
work-related purposes, though my official, married
name is Carlson.
