Vassilis Kostakos is professor Professor of Computer Engineering in Ubiquitous Computing Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Oulu. He holds a BSc and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bath, and is a Fellow of the Finland Distinguished Professor Programme. His research has been reported by popular media such as the BBC and New Scientist, and he regularly consults on social networking systems. His current projects address security and privacy for the web and situated services, novel sensing techniques for urban transport, sustainability, and modeling of city-scale mobility. His interests include: mobile and pervasive computing, human-computer interaction, social networks, security and privacy, modeling and simulation, epidemics, wireless technologies, and space syntax.
