Dr. Arsenia (Ersi) Chorti,
ETIS, UMR 8051,
6, Avenue du Ponceau,
95000, Cergy-Pontoise,

Professor at the ENSEA (Communications and Imaging (ICI) Group of the ETIS Lab UMR8051, CY Cergy Paris Université, ENSEA, CNRS), Research Fellow at the Barkhausen Institut, Visiting Research Scholar at Princeton University and IEEE Distinghuished Lecturer (2024-2025). Have a look at my recent profile interview at the IEEE ComSoc Women’s Video Series Production . Recent distinctions include my inclusion in the list of 100 Brilliant and Inspiting Women in 6G .
Two Postdoc positions available on Semantic and Context Aware 6G Security, details here!

Research Interests
My research spans the areas of wireless communications and the design of security schemes for 5G and 6G with a particular focus on physical layer security. The research topics I currently work on include: context aware security, wireless security, 6G and IoT, intrusion detection in IoT networks, machine learning for communications, non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), faster than Nyquist signalling. A few thoughts on How Physicality Enables Trust: A New Era of Trust-Centered Cyberphysical Systems from our recent work work with Stephanie Gil, Michal Yemini, Angelia Nedić, H. Vincent Poor and Andrea J. Goldsmith

Physical Layer Security Challenge
To showcase the feasibility of Physical Layer Security (PLS) for 6G, we have announced the first ever PLS security challenge, (Globecom 2023), joint work with A. Mayya, M. Mitev and G. Fettweis A SKG Security Challenge: Indoor SKG Under an On-The-Shoulder Eavesdropping Attack
