Dr. Stefan Rass

Dr. Stefan Rass graduated with a double master degree in mathematics and computer science from the Universitaet Klagenfurt (AAU) in 2005. He received a Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 2009 and habilitated on applied computer science and system security in 2014. His research interests cover decision theory and game-theory with applications in system security, as well as complexity theory, statistics, and information-theoretic security. He authored numerous papers related to security and applied statistics and decision theory in security. He (co-authored) the book “Cryptography for Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing,” published by Artech House, and edited the Springer Birkhäuser Book “Game Theory for Security and Risk Management: From Theory to Practice” in the series on Static & Dynamic Game Theory: Foundations & Applications. He participated in various nationally and internationally funded research projects, as well as being a contributing researcher in many EU projects and offering consultancy services to the industry. Currently, he is an associate professor at the AAU, teaching courses on algorithms and data structures, theoretical computer science, complexity theory, security, and cryptography.
