bio and contacts

Miguel Correia is a Full Professor (Professor Catedrático) at the Computer Science and Engineering Department (DEI), Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (ULisboa), in Lisboa, Portugal. He is vice-president for faculty at DEI. He is coordinator of the Doctoral Program in Information Security at IST. He is a member of the Board and senior researcher at INESC-ID, as well as member of the Distributed Systems Group (GSD). He is national representative at the European Blockchain Partnership that is designing the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI). He is a member of the Board of Técnico+ and a non-executive member of the Board of Associação .PT. He is Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Computers. He has a PhD in Computer Science from the Universidade de Lisboa Faculdade de Ciências. He has been involved in several international and national research projects related to cybersecurity, including the DE4A, BIG, QualiChain, SPARTA, SafeCloud, PCAS, TCLOUDS, ReSIST, CRUTIAL, and MAFTIA European projects. He has more than 200 publications and is Senior Member of the IEEE. His research focuses on cybersecurity and dependability (aka fault tolerance), typically in distributed systems, in the context of different applications (blockchain, cloud, mobile). He is particularly interested in the fault/intrusion tolerance approach, in which systems have to continue to operate correctly irrespectively of the occurrence of faults, attacks, and intrusions. His main research topics are: blockchain and Byzantine consensus, cloud security and dependability, trusted computing, software security, and security analytics and intrusion detection.
