My research interests span across several aspects of operating systems and systems security. As a security researcher and software engineer at Lastline, Inc., I designed and developed a basis for a next generation Automated Malware Analysis (LLAMA) system that benefits from both full system emulation and virtualization. Before that, I was an assistant professor in the System and Network Security group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, under the guidance of Prof. dr. ir. Herbert Bos.

I obtained my PhD from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My dissertation Using information flow tracking to protect legacy binaries was completed under the supervision of Prof. dr. ir. Herbert Bos, while my copromotor was Prof. dr. ir. Henri E. Bal. During the EuroSys 2013 conference, I was awarded the Roger Needham award for best PhD thesis in Computer Systems in Europe!

During my PhD studies, I interned twice with Microsoft Research Cambridge, where I joined the Systems and Performance Group. I also spent few months interning with the Systems and Security Department at Institute for Infocomm Research in Singapore.
