Dr. Christoforos Ntantogian (Dadoyan)

Dr. Christoforos Ntantogian (Dadoyan) received his B.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Telecommunications in 2004 and his M.Sc. degree in Computer Systems Technology in 2006 both from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of University of Athens. In 2009 he received his Ph.D. from the University of Athens (Department of Informatics and Telecommunications). Currently, he is an adjunct lecturer at the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus for the “Digital Systems Security” postgraduate programme.  He is a member of Green, Adaptive, and Intelligent Networking (Gain) in the University of Athens. He is also a senior researcher at the University of Piraeus and collaborates with Prof. Christos Xenakis. He has participated in numerous projects realized in the context of EU Programs (e.g., CONTENT, ANA, CASCADAS). His research interests lie in the intersection of data analysis, applied mathematics, and system/software security to develop practical systems with security intelligence.

Postgraduate Program:

  • Security Assesment and Vulnerability Exploitation 
  • Digital Forensics and Web Security
