About me

Marc-Oliver Pahl

My research

My research domain is cybersecurity. I follow a holistic multi-disciplinary approach, including the areas security-by-design, continuous monitoring and data analytics for anomaly detection, (semi-) automated defence for increasing resilience, and human-in-the-loop with multi-modal 3D interfaces.

Some keywords are: cybersecurity, security-by-design, digital twins, anomaly detection, semantics, microservices, middleware, access control, authentication, authorization, certificate-based security, end-to-end security, secure middle, peer-to-peer.

My major research axes.

              Raised Funding

              I am constantly mounting projects with a volume for my groups of over 2 000 000 EUR (in overall projects of several 10 MEUR) until 2021. I am experienced in the national and international public and private funding acquisition sectors. From the beginning, I am often in leading roles in projects. The funding covers research and teaching activities.
