Dr Martin Barrere is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Digital Resilience at the Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey, UK, and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Institute for Security Science and Technology at Imperial College London, UK. His current research work focuses on Cyber Security for Critical National Infrastructure. 

Before joining Surrey in April 2023, he was a postdoctoral Cyber Security Researcher at the Department of Computing (2014-2018) and later on at the Institute for Security Science and Technology (2018-2023) at Imperial College London, UK. In 2020, he was awarded a GCHQ Research Fellowship for National Resilience. 

Dr Barrere received his PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Lorraine / INRIA, France, in 2014. Prior to this, he worked in both academic and industry domains during several years, undertaking professional roles as CTO, network and system administrator, and software developer, in different companies. Dr Barrere is a frequent reviewer for several conferences and journals, serves in the technical program committees of various international conferences, and is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Network and Systems Management. 

His main research interests include network security, cyber-physical systems, attack graphs, security metrics, network management, risk analysis, autonomic computing, probabilistic graphical models, and forensic investigations.
