Eduard Marin

I am a Research Fellow in the Security and Privacy research group at the University of Birmingham (UK). I am interested in network security, cryptography and trusted computing. Currently, I am working with Prof Mark Ryan, Prof Flavio Garcia and Prof David Oswald on a EPSRC project entitled User-controlled hardware security anchors: evaluation and designs. I graduated as a telecommunications engineer in 2013 from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain) with the master thesis 'Security analysis of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator' developed at COSIC within the ERASMUS framework. In 2018, I obtained a PhD degree from KU Leuven (Belgium) under the supervision of Prof Bart Preneel and Dr Dave Singelée. My doctoral thesis is entitled 'Security and Privacy of Implantable Medical Devices'. After obtaining my PhD, I was a visiting research fellow for 6 months in the SPRITZ Security and Privacy group at the University of Padua (Italy) working with Prof Mauro Conti.
