My teaching philosophy is based on three major principles: learning by doing, active student participation, and collaborative self learning. Although my teaching is based on the tradition of lectures, tutorials and laboratories, larger projects (sometimes undertaken in groups) play a central role in my teaching philosophy. Student projects are intended to develop the higher level skills according to Bloom's taxonomy, i.e., analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The projects are normally open ended, which means that students are required to define a project according to their abilities, skills and personal interests, i.e., defining a well rounded project within the area of the overall project area becomes an important part of the project.

At DTU Compute, I have been teaching courses on both graduate (02222, 02230, 02232, 02234 02239, PNS, CSIR, CSRG) and undergraduate (02121, 02330, 02342, 02345) level. Moreover, I am responsible for the security curriculum in the DTU Big Data Business Academy, which is a continuing education program focusing on Big Data.
