Staff Member of the Year

Dr Andreea Radu


Andreea has supported the EPS AFNOM society since she was a PhD student at the University many years ago, and has continued to support the society, despite her many spinning plates associated with her role as a Lecturer, PERCAT Representative for the School of Computer Science and more. She has always made herself available to support students within the society to give them the best experience, even though AFNOM has not been able to formally meet since March 2020. Her devotion of time to AFNOM has seen it continue to grow and foster a collaborative and fun environment that students across the College have enjoyed. If any opportunities arise, Dr Radu works tirelessly to get School support for the society and impart her knowledge to upskill and support AFNOMers. Dr Radu goes well above her role within the School of Computer Science to make sure that AFNOM gets the support it needs, from running excellent events, supporting students at every stage of their ethical-hacking development, and being around for a good laugh and acting as a sounding post for students. Andreea is also passionate about getting more girls to consider cybersecurity as a career and she has boosted the number of women students in the department. For these reasons, and more, she exemplifies the Birmingham professional, and is more than deserving of the EPS Societies’ Awards Staff Member of the Year award for her time, commitment and devotion to the success of EPS Societies.
