|Dr Cristina Alcaraz is a research assistant working on topics related to critical (information) infrastructure protection. Although her main interest areas are awareness situational, which includes detection, prevention and response, and the strategic use of the Wireless Sensor Network technology for protection, she is also working on aspects related to control theory. The goal is that any dynamic and complex system (e.g. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems or Smart Grids systems) can be addressable irrespective to the environment conditions. This is possible through study of controllability and its security.|

|Dr Chris Dowden M.Sc. (Oxon) M.A. (Cantab) D.Phil. (Oxon) received his DPhil from Oxford University in 2008 and has since had postdoctoral positions at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand) and the Ecole Polytechnique (France), before joining the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway in April 2012. His research interests include graph theory and communication theory, and he is currently working on the project "Internet of Energy for Electric Mobility" under the supervision of Dr Stephen Wolthusen.|

|Dr Bertfried Fauser is interested in categorical algebra, monoidal structures and their deformations, combinatorial group and representation theory with a strong emphasis on applications. He is currently working at Royal Holloway on the Adaptive Security and Economics Laboratory project (ASECOLAB).
Bertfried studied Theoretical Physics (quantum field theory of sub-quark fermion composites) in Tübingen, receiving his PhD in 1996. For 5 years he worked on algebraic problems of QFTs with the astrophysics group at Konstanz (habilitation in 2002). Later he moved to the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Leipzig, where he worked on QFT-inspired algebra deformations and heavily graphical calculus.
After holding an algebra chair at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg for two semesters, he moved to Birmingham to work with Steve Vickers on topos physics,
2-categorical fibrations and locales described using bundles. For more about Bertfried's

|Dr Makayla Lewis Makayla completed a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at City University London's Centre for HCI Design in 2012, where she was funded by EPRSC to research online social network experiences and challenges, specifically change management, from a perspective of end users with motor impairments, especially cerebral palsy. Not only does she believe that the web should be accessible for all, it should also be secure for all. Makayla was drawn to the CySeCa project because she is not only passionate about user-centered research, but also about alternative ways to display this information using data-driven visualisations. More information can be found on Makayla's website www.makaylalewis.co.uk|

|Dr Alexandre Pinto received a diploma in Computer Engineering from the University of Porto in 1999. After working as a commercial software engineer, he studied for a PhD in Computer Science, focusing on Kolmogorov Complexity and Cryptography. He is currently working at Royal Holloway on the Adaptive Security and Economics Laboratory project (ASECOLAB). He is interested in security matters in general, and especially in cryptography. Alexandre enjoys exploring other fields – related and unrelated to Computer Security – in search of fresh insight. He is particularly fond of physics, music and linguistics.

|Dr Bertram Poettering studied at University of Hamburg (Germany), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal), and TU Darmstadt (Germany), obtaining master degrees in both computer science and mathematics. After receiving his PhD at TU Darmstadt/CASED in early 2012, he is currently holding a postdoc position at Information Security Group, at RHUL. His research focuses on information security in general, with a strong emphasis on cryptography.|
