Piers O'Hanlon's expertise is in the area of networked systems, media transport, and security. His current research is in the area of security and privacy in federated sensor networks.
Piers O'Hanlon has been involved with research into Internet based systems since the early nineties. His current research focusses on security, privacy, and congestion control. Whilst at University College London he also worked on networked multimedia transport over IPv4 and IPv6, large-scale conferencing applications, grid systems, and network testbeds. He has significant expertise in these areas, having worked on, and managed, a number of UK-, EU-, and US-funded research projects. He is an active participant in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), having authored a number of standards and drafts in media transport, emergency services, and signalling areas. He has participated in the Open Grid Forum (OGF) as a working group chair, and authored a number of standards documents. He has also consulted for a number of organisations and companies.
Positions held at the OII
- Researcher, May 2013 - September 2014
- Fresnel Research Fellow, June 2011 - April 2013
October 2013 - September 2016
This project considers the challenges of having robot proxies in public spaces. It will conduct experiments exploring trust in shared social settings, and develop a framework for understanding the impact of privacy / anonymity in human-robot interactions.
May 2011 - April 2014
This project is addressing home network and service security by researching and developing security frameworks for sharing between networks and devices, protocols to connect devices with cloud services, and security analysis of remote management systems.
January 2010 - April 2013
FRESNEL aims to build a large scale federated sensor network framework with multiple applications sharing the same resources, where reliable intra-application communication is guaranteed, as well as a scalable and distributed management infrastructure.
