I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the System and Network Security Group at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where I obtained my Ph.D. (cum laude) in June 2017 for my thesis entitled “Analyzing and Securing Binaries Through Static Disassembly“. At EuroSys 2018, my thesis won the Roger Needham Ph.D. Award for best Ph.D. thesis in Computer Systems in Europe, and at CCS 2018 my thesis won the ACM SIGSAC Doctoral Dissertation Award. My research focuses on reverse engineering and binary-level security techniques. Next to that, I am also interested in binary (de)obfuscation and advanced malware; particularly in targeted malware and in botnet C2 channels. During my Ph.D., I interned with Cisco, where I developed fine-grained CFI implementations for embedded systems.
