Marius Iulian Mihailescu completed his PhD at the University of Bucharest, where he studied security techniques for guaranteeing the confidentiality and integrity of biometrics data stored in databases. Today he is an associate lecturer at Spiru Haret University, a software project manager at Institute for Computers, and chief executive officer (CEO) and founder of Dapyx Solution. His work mainly focuses on applied/theoretical cryptography and information security.
Marius’s research interests extend to such areas as biometrics, the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, cloud/edge/fog computing, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep learning, with applications in the cybersecurity field. His research goals include understanding the real requirements of complex systems and their applications in different domains, and providing real and practical solutions for guaranteeing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of the processes.
With more than ten years of experience in software development, engineering, and security vulnerabilities, combined with more than eight years teaching in academia, Marius was able to identify gaps in the market task force and design unique and practical courses for academia that will help students connect with organizational missions. He works to take students out of their comfort zones and instead embrace cybersecurity, information security, digital forensics, and incident response as an ever-changing field. The goal, always, is to help students learn new technologies and embrace every opportunity for learning new things, even when they think a task is time-consuming or challenging.
Marius has authored/co-authored more than 60 papers in conference proceedings and journals, as well as seven books on applied cryptography, programming in Haskell, and web technologies. He started reviewing for CR in 2022.
