Dr. Tatiana Ermakova

Former Research Group Lead
Tatiana Ermakova

Dr Tatiana Ermakova (Fraunhofer FOKUS) was Research Group Leader "Digitalisation and Networked Security" from December 2019 to September 2022. In recent years, her main research focus laid on the design of security and privacy-enhancing architectures, as well as the analyses of the readability of privacy policies, the structure and resilience of Internet topologies (using methods of network analysis), as well as perceptions and behavior of Internet users.

In 2015, she did her Ph.D. at the Technical University of Berlin on the topic "Security and Acceptance of Cloud Computing in Healthcare". In 2010, she completed her studies in Information Systems (M.Sc.) as a DAAD scholarship holder at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In her master thesis, she worked on "Comparison of Secret-Sharing Schemes for Private Information Discovery". Between 2008 and 2015, she was involved into various larger research projects, such as "TRESOR - Trusted Ecosystem for Standardized and Open cloud-based Resources" (2012-2015). Most recently, Tatiana Ermakova worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer for Data Science at the University of Potsdam (2015-2017) and as a Data Scientist and Researcher at the Central Research Institute of Ambulatory Health Care in Germany (2017-2019).
