Personal profile

Research interests

Professor Haris Mouratidis' research interests lie in the intersection of software engineering and security engineering.

His long-term research goal is to effectively analyse, understand and improve secure software systems for large, open and dynamic environments. Therefore, he is interested in developing ontologies, languages, models, processes, methodologies and automated testing and optimisation techniques that consider security as an integral aspect of the software systems development process. He is also interested in applying the theoretical research outputs of my work to different application domains and my work has been applied to the development and analysis of systems in the areas of critical infrastructures, cloud computing, health-care, telecommunications, banking, and e-commerce.

Haris' recent research work is focused on the definition of abstractions, models and processes to understand analyse, reason, design and test secure software systems. He has pioneered work that combines theory from the areas of information systems engineering, software engineering, security engineering and multi-agent systems (in particular agent oriented software engineering). He has developed requirements modelling languages, based on the Goal-Oriented Requirement Engineering (GORE) paradigm, and security-aware processes that enable the elicitation, and modelling of security properties of a software system. Moreover, his work enables the analysis of relevant threats and vulnerabilities to the system and proposes ways to deal with those during the requirements stage. He has made significant contributions to modelling languages and methodologies that support the analysis and reasoning of security properties as part of the information/systems development process and he has developed methods that assist developers to test, at design time, the developed system against potential security attacks (security attack scenarios); techniques that allow developers to reason about alternative architectural styles based on the security requirements of the system under development; and modelling diagrams that allow developers to represent the relationships between various security related concepts (such as threats, security mechanisms, protection objectives). He has also pioneered work on integrating security requirements engineering methods with secure design languages.

Within these research areas Haris has supervised to completion seven PhD and one MPhil students and I currently supervise Five PhD students at the University of Brighton. He has also examined 16 PhD students.

He is leading the University of Brighton on three European Union funded projects, VisiOn, MITIGATE and SESAME.

Research interests

Haris Mouratidis is Professor of Software Systems Engineering at the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics, at the University of Brighton.

He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and a Professional Member of the British Computer Society (BCS). Haris has been a visiting researcher at the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Japan, and a visiting fellow at the British Telecom (BT), U.K and the University College London, U.K. He is visiting professor at the University of the Aegean, Greece.

His research interests lie in the area of secure software systems engineering, requirements engineering, and information systems development. He is interested in developing methodologies, modelling languages, ontologies, tools and platforms to support the analysis, design, monitoring of security, privacy, risk and trust for large-scale complex software systems. He has published more than 140 papers (h-index 24) and he has secured more than £3M to support research and knowledge transfer. His funding portfolio includes grants from the European Union (FP7, Horizon2020), EPSRC, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE), and the Japanese National Institute of Informatics. He has also received funding from the Knowledge Transfer Partnership/Technology Strategy Board and the European Regional Development Fund for knowledge transfer and from industrial cources including British Telecom, ELC, Powerchex, and FORD.

His 'Powerchex KTP' project was finalist for the best 2012 UK National Knowledge Transfer Partnership TSB award.

He has strong experience of acting as evaluator for national and international funding bodies including the EPSRC, HEA, the EU, the Research Council of Norway, the Innovation Fund of Denmark, and the Austrian Research Council, and he has been invited subject expert for events organised by the EU, NATO and TSB.

He is on the editorial boards of the Requirements Engineering Journal and the International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design and he has been involved in the organization of various events related to his research interests. He was the General co-Chair of CAiSE’14 and he will be general chair of RCIS’17.

He holds a B.Eng. (Hons) from the University of Wales, Swansea (UK), and a M.Sc. and PhD from the University of Sheffield (UK). He is also Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and Professional Member of the British Computer Society (BCS). He has been a visiting researcher at the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Japan, and a visiting fellow at the British Telecom (BT), U.K and the University College London (UCL), U.K. He is visiting professor at the University of the Aegean, Greece.
