Guevara Noubir holds a PhD in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. His research covers both theoretical and practical aspects of privacy, security, and robustness in networked systems. Prior to joining Northeastern University, he was a senior researcher at CSEM SA where he led the design and development of the data protocol-stack of the third generation Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) and its world first 3G prototype. His research led to a wide range of mechanisms and algorithms for scalable, secure, private and robust wireless and mobile communications. He led the winning team of the 2013 DARPA Spectrum Cooperative Challenge against 90 academic and industry teams. He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2005), the ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (WiSec) best paper award in 2011 and runner-up best paper in 2013. His research was featured in the NSF CISE/CNS Highlights in 2009 and 2012. Dr. Noubir held visiting research positions at Eurecom, MIT, and UNL.
Dr. Noubir served and is serving as program co-chair of several conferences in his areas of expertise such as the ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks, IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security, and IEEE WoWMoM. He serves on the editorial board of the ACM Transaction on Information and Systems Security, IEEE Transaction on Mobile Computing, and the Elsevier Journal on Computer Networks.
