Dr Megha Quamara
Dr Megha Quamara received her PhD in Computer Science and Telecommunications from the University of Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier (France), with a thesis on the interplay between safety, security, and system architecture. During her doctoral research, she worked with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in collaboration with the Computer Science Research Institute of Toulouse. Before this, she received her Master of Technology degree, specializing in Cyber Security, from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Kurukshetra (India). During her master’s research, she worked on a project on the implementation of security features in smart cards, funded by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) (New Delhi), with the results of her thesis published in CRC Press.
Currently, Megha’s research focuses on developing and applying formal-based automated tools for security analysis of socio-technical systems that combine eXtended Reality (XR) systems and their human users. She works with Prof. Luca Vigano’s research group, as part of the Horizon EU-funded SERMAS project that lays the foundations of next-generation XR systems, looking at how people relate and interact with the technology.
She is also serving as the Member-at-Large in the IEEE ComSoc’s Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) committee.
