I am a currently a Ph.D. researcher at the Institute of System Security at TU Braunschweig. Prior to this, I graduated in Telecommunication Engineering at the Computer Security Lab at Carlos III University of Madrid and then joined the Machine Learning Group of Prof. Dr. Müller at the Berlin Institute of Technology.

During autumn 2015 I joined the Symantec Center for Advanced Machine Learning in Mountain View as a research intern, where I worked on deep learning methods for classifcation of code graph representations to infer behavioral patterns in malicious code.

My research interests revolve around the development of new learning methods for high dimentional structured data to analyse and reverse engineer malware code and build system behavioral models that facilitate the early identification of targeted attacks.
