I am a Research Assistant and Ph.D candidate in Computer Security Lab (COSEC) at Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). Before starting to develop my research focused career I have worked for nine years in different private companies as support engineer, developer, project manager and business intelligence consultant in several projects across different business sectors. I hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science and a M.Sc in Computer Engineering from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. I am currently involved in the CIBERDINE research project, related to cybersecurity, information sharing, big data and risks. In the past, I have been involved in projects related to contact centers, telecommunications and financial services in the private sector. You can see my complete LinkedIn profile here.
My research topics are related to computer and cyber security, more precisely cyber threat intelligence and security information management and analysis. I work with both offline and online machine learning algorithms to model different problems related to traditional SIEMs and system logs, extracting patterns and trying to predict relevant information to improve security capabilities in a Big Data fashion, while integrating threat intelligence sources to get more valuable knowledge. Also, I think collaboration is a key issue to a better awareness, consequently I like to deal with information sharing models to show its relevance, applying different techniques as game theory. Finally, I am interested in leading current security models to a new state based on distributed systems and ledgers, thus block chain technologies.
