JUAN TAPIADOR

SHORT BIO

I am a computer scientist in the Computer Security Lab (COSEC) at UC3M. I obtained a B.Sc. in Computer Science in 2000 from the University of Granada, and then a Ph.D in 2004 from the same university with a dissertation on statistical anomaly detection for network security. Prior to joining UC3M, I worked at the University of York, UK. My work there was mainly funded by the ITA project, a joint effort between the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Army Research Lab led by IBM. In July 2012, I was appointed Associate Professor of Computer Science at UC3M.

RESEARCH

My research focuses on engineering secure software and systems. I am particularly interested in malware analysis, reverse engineering, anomaly and intrusion detection, and automating defense and analysis techniques. Over the last 15 years I have worked in various system and network security topics, including cryptographic protocols, statistical anomaly detection, cyber range systems, and security in new operating systems such as Android. Starting with my early work on anomaly detection, I developed a keen interest in the applications of machine learning and large-scale data analysis techniques to security problems.My research focuses on engineering secure software and systems.
