Prior to this, I was an assistant professor in Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Also, I spent around 4 years at COmputer SECurity lab (COSEC) as a PhD student and could finally receive my PhD degree in Computer Science from the same university. My thesis was mainly focused on Android malware analysis and triage.
Generally speaking, I am working and conducting research in computer and cyber security. However, I am particularly interested in mobile security, malware analysis, reverse engineering and applied machine learning in security. In addition, I am eager to tackle security issues from a multi-objective perspective, i.e. trying to deal with such problems by consuming the least possible amount of in hand resources.
Previously and as an undergraduate student, I have worked in a wide range of areas, from advanced software engineering to Artificial Intelligence (AI). Also, I have developed several intelligent systems and have passed different AI-related courses, including machine learning, pattern mining, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation and optimization, neural networks and image processing.
