I'm a cyber-security researcher focusing on practical aspects of systems and software cyber-security. I analyse potential cyber-security attacks at various architectural levels, and in different environments (OS, hypervisor and mobile), and propose countermeasures for them. My recent work investigate the arms-race among malware and anti-malware and the application of AI/ML in cyber-security. I'm currently the Research and Team Lead of Huawei Artificial Intelligence for Cyber Security (AI4Sec) Research Team at Munich Research Center.
