I am a Lecturer in the Semantics, Cybersecurity and Services group of the university of Twente.
My research focuses on security automation and the integration of machine learning and AI techniques into security solutions. More specifically, I am interested in network-based intrusion detection and the continuous integration of such systems in dynamic, rapidly changing environments. To this end, I focus on anomaly detection, contextual security analysis using deep neural networks, and the application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques for sharing cyber threat intelligence.
I strongly believe in open, collaborative science, where researchers can easily and quickly access previous research. To that end, I maintain several security tools that have been developed through research efforts.
Finally, I love Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions, and I am involved in the organization of the Twente Hacking Squad, the University of Twente's student hacking team.
