Short Biography

Youakim BADR, Ph.D., joined the faculty of the National Institute of Applied Sciences, France (INSA-Lyon) as Associate Professor of Computer Science in 2004. Over the course of his research, he has worked extensively in the area of service computing and information security. He has acquired skills in fields such as service security, interoperability, modeling and architectures, and their application to domains such as supply chains, productions systems and e-commerce. His current research interests lie in designing and implementing secured IT-enabled services in a socio-technical context. He focuses on challenges in the Internet of Things (IoT), including smart services, IoT built-in analytic languages and blockchain-based security.
