Daniel Russo

Hi & Welcome! I’m Daniel, and currently, I’m serving as a tenured Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University in Copenhagen. Here, you can find some info about my work.

Previously joining AAU, I was a postdoc at the Computer Science Department of the University College Cork, working with Klaas-Jan Stol, after my Ph.D. in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Bologna with Paolo Ciancarini. I’ve been affiliated (among others) with different research institutions, such as the Irish Software Research Centre (Lero), the Italian National Research Council (CNR), and the Italian Interuniversity Consortium for Computer Science (CINI). Also, I have 5+ years of experience in lecturing different Computer Science classes at several universities.

I have extensive experience collaborating with industry partners, such as the Italian Army General Staff, Deloitte Financial Services, Huawei Research, and The Liberators by providing value both to the organizations and the research community. In January 2015, I also co-founded and directed GBOARD, a start-up in the sustainable mobility sector, and I’m well aware of entrepreneurship struggles.

I am the PI of PanTra, a project funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and a local co-PI of Sb3D – Security by Design in Digital Denmark funded by the Danish Industry Foundation. Since 2019 I was part of the ACM Future of Computing Academy and I’m an HLF alumnus (2018 class). Most recently, I was the ACM Ubiquity Innovation Leader for the March 2023 issue.
