I’m a PhD student in the VUSec Systems Security group at the VU since September 2015, working under the supervision of Herbert Bos and Cristiano Giuffrida.

My research focuses on operating system security, compiler passes to harden existing applications, and binary hardening. Examples include  Multi-variant execution and using low-level hardware/OS features for protection.

During the summer of 2017 I did an internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge under supervision of Manuel Costa in the Programming Principles and Tools group.
