I am a PhD candidate in Computer Security (COSEC) Lab at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. My main research topic is automatic malware classification and analysis by means of machine learning techniques. I hold a B.Sc and a M.Sc in computer science from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
Apart from my main research line, I’m also interested in several topics related with information security and applied cryptography, such as:
- Security in smartphone and mobile devices
- Security in Wireless Body Area Network (WBANs) and implantable medical devices (IMDs)
- Computer forensic and reverse engineering
- Automatic development of cryptographic algorithms by means of bio-inspired techniques
