He studies the interplay between technological design and economic incentives in Internet security. His team analyses large-scale Internet measurement and incident data to identify how the markets for Internet services deal with security risks. Michel van Eeten has worked on critical infrastructure protection issues for over a decade. His work as a policy analyst included advice for a variety of infrastructure operators and service providers in telecommunications, rail transport, electricity provision, water supply and financial services. He is also a member of the Dutch Cyber Security Council.

Zofia Lukszo

Zofia Lukszo is an Associate Professor at the Delft University of Technology at the Energy and Industry group of the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. She is also a leader of the programme Intelligent Infrastructures within international research programme on Next Generation Infrastructures. The Intelligent Infrastructure sub-programme concentrates on a wide range of problems in the way infrastructures are functioning today, and aims to develop new, intelligent concepts for modelling, optimization and control of their operation resulting in more effective, efficient, safe and reliable utilization. She is frequently a member of the International Program/Organizing Committee of international conferences, e.g.: IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control, London, April 2007 (general co-chair) and the Fifth IEEE International Conference on Service Operations, Logistics and Informatics (SOLI 2009), Chicago, July 2009 (Special Session Chair).
