COPES has 4 members:

     KTH Royal Institute of Technology/ Communication Theory Department  represented be Prof. Tobias Oechtering and Prof. Mikael Skoglund brings its expertise in system design, detection theoretic and information theoretic physical layer privacy as well as networked control.

    Imperial College London represented by Dr. Deniz Gunduz and Borzoo Rassouli works in system design, detection theoretic and information
theoretic physical layer privacy as well as networked control.

    INRIA / PRIVATICS TEAM  represented by Cedric Lauradoux and Claude Castelluccia has a strong background on privacy and is interested by differential privacy.

     ETH Zurich / Information Technology and Electrical Engineering represented by Prof. Gabriela Hug and Prof. Göran Andersson working on operation, control and optimization in electric power systems to the project to ensure applicability in the physical system.

Tobias Oechtering is the leader of COPES. He is an Associate Professor in Communication Theory Dept of KTH. He
obtained his Dr.-Ing degree from TU Berlin in 2007 and received among other awards the Vodafone Förderpreis 2009 and
the SRA-ICT TNG Rising Star starting grant. He has published about 20 journal and 80 conference papers, is main/co-supervisor
of 3/3 PhD students (+ 3 PhD graduates) and 2 Post-docs, and is editor of IEEE Communication Letters
since 2012. He has participated and led numerous research projects; including a Junior Researcher Project (PI) , VR Framework
Project (co-PI), and industry project (PI). If you are interested by the project, you can directly contact him.

Deniz Gunduz received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, Brooklyn, NY in 2004 and 2007, respectively. He is currently a Reader (Associate Prof.) in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of Imperial College London. Previously he was a Research Associate at CTTC, Barcelona, Spain, a Consulting Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, and a postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University.  He is also an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Communications, and IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking. He was the general co-chair of the 2016 IEEE Information Theory Workshop, and the Symposium Co-chair of the 2017 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference. He is the co-chair of the 2018 ICC Workshop on Promises and Challenges of Machine Learning in Communication Networks, and the 2018 Workshop on Smart Antennas. He is the recipient of a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC), the 2014 IEEE Communications Society Best Young Researcher Award for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region, the 2017 IEEE Communications Society Communication Theory Technical Committee (CTTC) Early Achievement Award; and a recipient of the Best Paper Award at the 2016 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), and the Best Student Paper Award at the 2007 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT).

Borzoo Rassouli received his M.Sc. degree in communication systems engineering from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2012 and PhD from Imperial College London in 2016. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Intelligent System Network Group at Imperial College. His research interests are in the general area of information theory, wireless communications, detection and estimation theory.
