Loukas Lazos

Short Bio

I am a faculty member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Arizona. Before joining the University of Arizona, I was a co-director of the Network Security Lab at the University of Washington. I received my Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. I obtained my undergraduate diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. My current research interests are in the areas of security and privacy, networking, and wireless communications, focusing on identification, modeling and mitigation of network security vulnerabilities, visualization of network threats, and analysis of network performance.
