I am PhD student at Lulea University of Technology and I work as a researcher at the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland in the research field ”Cloud and Cyber Physical Systems Security”. Recently, I was working at the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) in the AIT’s ICT-Security Program and was responsible for evaluating data security, data privacy and high assurance in cloud computing. Also part of my duty was to build an OpenStack Cloud System testbed used for monitoring high assurance of critical infrastructure services.

I received my Dipl -Ing. degree in Communication Engineering from the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences, Klagenfurt - Austria and my B.Sc. degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Tirana - Albania.
