Ahmed Elmesiry received his M.S. Degree in Computer Science from the Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport under partnership with United States - Egypt Joint Science and Technology program, and Ph.D. Degree in Computing - Information Security and Assurance from Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland. He visited the Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications and Secure Systems at Monash University, Australia from May 2014 to June 2015. Before he joined the electronic engineering department of universidad técnica Federico Santa María, He was a Research Fellow at the Swedish Research Cluster on the Internet of Things where he was developing privacy enhancing technologies for networked IOT Services. He has worked on several national and international projects in areas involving IT security, privacy and trust such as ICT SOCIETIES (EU FP7 framework), Open FET project MODAP (EU FP7 framework), PRTLI-HEA FutureComm (Science Foundation Ireland) and KK-Stiftelsen SMASH (The Swedish Knowledge Foundation). His research interests include applied cryptography, privacy enhancing technologies, healthcare social networks, malware analysis & detection, and cyber-physical system security. His research results were published in various journals, conferences and Books. The aim of his research is to build the Next Generation of Networked IOT Services based on new models for handling data, for computing, and for interaction, with formal guarantees of Trust, Privacy, and Security, where users can understand and trust these services. His work has broadly combined theoretical principles to ensure sound security guarantees coupled with practical techniques to ensure scalability and performance.
