Martin Strohmeier’s dissertation published after winning accolade


Martin Strohmeier’s DPhil dissertation ‘Security in Next Generation Air Traffic Communication Networks’ has received a commendation and been published on the BCS website.

The Council of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC), in conjunction with BCS and BCS Academy of Computing, annually selects for publication the best British PhD/DPhil dissertations in computer science. Martin’s submission was the runner up for 2017, and has therefore been published along with the winning dissertation.

The scheme aims to make more visible the significant contribution made by the UK - in particular by postgraduate students - to computer science. Publication also serves to provide a model for future students. The award is presented on 20 November at the annual Roger Needham Lecture, held at the Royal Society.

Martin is currently a post-doctoral researcher with the Department of Computer Science. His main research interests are in the area of network and systems security, including wireless sensor networks and critical infrastructure protection. During his DPhil at Oxford, he has extensively analysed the security and privacy of wireless aviation technologies and focused on the development of novel cyber-physical approaches to improve their resilience quickly and efficiently.
