I am an Associate Professor in Empirical Security Analysis and Internet Evolution in the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems Group at the University of Twente.
Before joining the University of Twente, I was Lecturer in Networks and Security at the University of Sydney (that’s Asst. Prof. in other systems), Australia. Until 2016, I was a Researcher at NICTA (later CSIRO's Data61), also in Sydney, where I worked on network security and was part of the Security Business Team.

My research interests revolve around understanding and improving the Internet for everyone, with a particular focus on security aspects. Most recently, I have been working on
- Global-scale measurement of Internet service deployments and their security
- Data-driven security mechanisms
- Analysis of emerging technology and its implications
I view my work through the lens of real-world implications. The tech is not always what matters—it’s the embedding in our world that makes it meaningful. Hence, I work with other disciplines and industry alike to make the Internet a safer, more secure, and altogether more interesting and useful place.
