Head of the Software Systems Engineering (SSE) research group
Dr Paolo Falcarin is a Reader in Computer Science at the University of East London. He was awarded his PhD in Software Engineering in 2004, and MEng in Computer Engineering in 2000 from Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy), where he worked as a research associate before joining UEL in 2010.
Paolo is leading the Software Systems Engineering research group, and his research interests include Software Protection and Security, Software and Systems Modelling, and Service Oriented Computing.
Paolo has been Principal Investigator for UEL in the European FP7 project ASPIRE (Advanced Software Protection: Integration Research and Exploitation) jointly with six companies and universities from across Europe.
Paolo spent a sabbatical research leave in 2012 at Centre for Research on Evolution Search and Testing (CREST) under the Computer Science department at UCL (University College London). He has been visiting lecturer at Tongji University of Shanghai in 2009 and Hangzhou Dianzi university in 2016, and visiting researcher at ETH Zurich in 2003.
Paolo is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, an Oracle Certified Professional Java programmer, and an amateur chess player.
My research is in the areas of software engineering for complex systems, and software protection and security, and I am currently leading the Software Systems Engineering group at UEL.
Paolo Falcarin was awarded 500,000 euros from European Union FP7 framework as UEL's Principal Investigator within the ASPIRE research project.
The ASPIRE project had an overall research grant of 3,000,000 euros and it was led by Ghent University (Belgium) together with UEL, Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy), Gemalto (Paris, France), SafeNet (Munich, Germany), Nagravision (Lausanne, Switzerland), and Politechnic University of Turin (Italy).
