My Academic bio Vitor Jesus is a Lecturer with Birmingham City University and has 20 years of professional experience, split between Industry and Academia. He holds a BSc in Physics, a MSc and PhD in Computer Science and Networks and industry certifications in Cyber Security and Data Privacy. He has 20 years of professional experience, split between Industry and Academia. He has held positions with different companies, from start-ups to large and well-known organisations. He has authored a number of papers, has been in the review panel of several conferences, was a visiting scholar in different institutions, such as Carnegie Mellon University, and has worked in a number of international projects.

His current research and teaching interests are in CyberSecurity and Privacy. We live in a world where CyberSecurity is becoming a basic need just like physical safety is; or its absence can bring down a business, a community or a country. We are also moving towards a world where there is no Privacy by default and everyone's Identity and Data will eventually be stolen. Vitor's research aims at bringing control back to users by looking at technologies and solutions, such as Blockchains, Secure Networks or Artificial Intelligence, whether it is in Cars, the Internet, Medical devices, Enterprises, Factories or Cities.
