Junior Research Fellow, Kellogg College




General research interests: security and privacy in wireless networks, wireless sensor networks, future air traffic control communication, crowdsourcing, UAV, ADS-B, ACARS, and more generally all wireless technologies used in aviation, navigation and critical infrastructures. Recently, I have also been interested in privacy issues in complex global systems such as aviation, open source intelligence, and data mining.

I am also contributing to the OpenSky project, featured in the departmental magazine. For more up to date information on our work on aviation security, please see Aviation Security at Oxford.



Martin Strohmeier (PGP key) is a post-doctoral researcher in systems security in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford. His main research interests are currently in the area of network security, including wireless sensor networks and critical infrastructure protection. During his DPhil at Oxford, he has extensively analyzed the security and privacy of wireless aviation technologies of this generation and the next . His work predominantly focuses on developing cyber-physical approaches which can improve the security of air traffic control quickly and efficiently. He is also a co-founder of the aviation research network OpenSky. Before coming to Oxford in 2012, he received his MSc degree from TU Kaiserslautern, Germany and joined Lancaster University's InfoLab21 and Lufthansa AG as a visiting researcher.  

His work on aviation security received several awards from the aviation and computer security communities, including the EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship. His dissertation was further highly commended by the British Computer Society.
