Ghita Kouadri
London, United Kingdom

Ghita Kouadri Mostefaoui is currently a researcher at the computing laboratory at Oxford University. Her research interests include software engineering, context-aware computing, context-based security, security in general, and e-health.

Before joining Oxford University, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Montreal, Canada, and as a research and teaching assistant at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland).

She received her engineering diploma in electronics (with first class honors) from the University of Blida, Algeria in 1996 under the supervision of Yazid Cherfa. In 1999, she earned an MS degree (pre-doctoral school) in computer science from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), where she worked in the virtual reality lab led by Daniel Thalmann. Ghita received her PhD in computer science from both the University of Fribourg and Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6) in 2004.

Ghita has published many papers on security, context, software engineering, and pervasive computing. She also serves as a technical reviewer for several conferences and journals including Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC), IEEE International Symposium on Security in Networks and Distributed Systems (SSNDS), Journal of Science of Computer Programming, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, and ACM SIGecom Exchanges.

Ghita is member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and the Swiss Informaticians Society (SIS).

Even though Ghita has visited many countries and lived on three different continents, she is very attached to her home country, Algeria. Aside from computer science and electronics, Ghita has a passion for Arabic literature, Islamic art, and music.
