I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Secure Systems Lab (SecLab) at Northeastern University, working with Prof. Engin Kirda.

Before joining SecLab at Northeastern University, I was an assistant professor at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Also, I spent around 4 years at COmputer SECurity lab (COSEC) as a PhD student before receiving my PhD degree in Computer Science and Technology from the same university. My thesis was mainly focused on Android malware analysis and triage. As an undergraduate student, I have worked in a wide range of areas, from advanced software engineering to artificial intelligence.

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.
