Fellows recognised with professorships

16 July 2015

Two Kellogg Fellows, Cas Cremers and Niki Trigoni, have been conferred with the title Professor following the Recognition of Distinction process by the University of Oxford.

Both Fellows are members of the Department of Computer Science. Niki Trigoni is Professor of Computer Science and Cas Cremers is Professor of Information Security.

Since moving to Oxford in 2007, Niki Trigoni has established the Sensor Networks Group, and has conducted research in communication, localization and in-network processing algorithms for sensor networks. Her recent and ongoing projects span a wide variety of sensor networks applications, including indoor/underground localization, wildlife sensing, road traffic monitoring, autonomous (aerial and ground) vehicles, and sensor networks for industrial processes.

Cas Cremers joined the University of Oxford in 2013. His research focuses on information security, in particular the formal analysis of security protocols. This work ranges from developing mathematical foundations for protocol analysis to the development of analysis tools, notably the Scyther tool.  More recently, his research expanded into directions such as protocol standardisation, including the improvement of the ISO/IEC 9798 standard, and applied cryptography, leading to the development of new security requirements and protocols.
