Angelos K. Marnerides is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and also a Faculty Member at the KIOS Research and Innovation Centre of Excellence at the University of Cyprus. Prior to that he was an Associate Professor in the School of Computing Science (SoCS) at the University of Glasgow (UofG), UK. During his time at UofG, he led the Glasgow Cyber Defence Group (GCDG) steering the research activities in cybersecurity across SoCS and was also a member of the UofG’s Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS). During the period 2016-2020 he was an Asst. Professor at the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University where he founded the innovative Digital Infrastructure Defense (i-DID) group. Before that he spent two years as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK. 

His research focuses on applied security and resilience for Internet-enabled cyber physical systems using data-driven approaches. His research has received significant funding in excess of €7M+ from the industry (e.g., Fujitsu, BAE, Raytheon, EDF), governmental bodies (e.g., EU, IUK, EPSRC) as well as UK national security and defense entities (e.g., NCSC, GCHQ, MoD Dstl). Dr. Marnerides is currently the project coordinator for the €5.8M COCOON project funded by the EU Horizon Innovation Action (IA) being the first ever EU IA project coordinated by UCY KIOS and UCY in general. He has been invited to serve as an expert reviewer in grant proposal panels and research assessment exercise frameworks (e.g., Hong-Kong RAE, Chilean research commission, Israel Innovation Authority). Prof. Marnerides also held various consulting roles with a focus on cybersecurity for various SMEs (e.g., Altelium, Santane), global cybersecurity vendors (e.g., Fujitsu UK) as well as infrastructure operators (e.g., EDF UK). He is a Senior Member of the IEEE  (SMIEEE) and a member of the ACM since 2007 and served as a Technical Program Committee (TPC) member, TPC track and workshop co-chair and organiser for several top IEEE and IFIP conferences including IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE CCNC, IFIP Networking, IEEE WoWMoM, and IEEE GLOBALSIP leading him to receive IEEE ComSoc contribution awards in 2016 and 2018. Prof. Marnerides is also a patent author in the area of malware detection in cloud infrastructures that is actively utilised by British Telecoms (BT). He holds a BSc with Honours (Middlesex University, London, '06) in Computing Science, an MSc (Distinction, '07) in Critical Software Engineering and a PhD (Lancaster University, '07 & '11)  in Computer Science with a focus in computer networks and cybersecurity. He held postdoctoral and visiting researcher positions at Carnegie Mellon University (USA), University College London (UK), University of Porto (Portugal) and Lancaster University (UK).
