Well, hello there.
My name is Alexandros Mittos and I’m a PhD student at UCL. I am interested in Privacy and more specifically in Genomic Privacy.
I’m part of a training network called Privacy & Usability which is funded by the European Union.
I received my Bachelor of Engineering from the Information and Communication Systems Engineering department, of the University of the Aegean in 2014. I was also awarded with a scholarship for my MSc studies in Information & Communication Systems Security, where I served as a lab assistant and as a course assistant.
At the moment I am part of the Information Security Research Group of UCL, where, under the guidance of Emiliano De Cristofaro, I am investigating how to securely and efficiently store genomic data, design and implement privacy-preserving genomic testing, as well as support user-centered design of secure personal genomic applications.
I like to consider myself an advocate of Privacy and I am a firm believer and user of Open Source Software.
