Currently, I am involved in the following projects both at the national and international level:
As an associate professor in the Cybersecurity group at TU Delft, my research is centered on exploring the various ways in which we can enhance the security of the Internet of Things, Smart Cities, and Data Science. In a world that is rapidly becoming more connected, it is crucial that we ensure the safety and security of these connected products and services, so that we can build a sustainable future.
I have spent my career delving into the field of information security, earning my PhD in 2012 in the area of vehicular ad-hoc networks. Prior to that, I obtained a MSc in Telecommunications, where I focused on the security of wireless sensor networks at Philips Laboratories in Aachen. And before that, I received an MSc in Telematics, where I studied the secure transmission of video streaming for mobile ad-hoc networks.
In addition to my academic pursuits, I have also had the opportunity to work with the Information Security Group in the Department of Telematics Engineering at UPC in Barcelona. My diverse background in business and management, as well as my degree in Administration and Business Management from the Open University of Catalonia, has given me a unique perspective on the importance of cybersecurity in today's world.
I am passionate about using my expertise to help others understand and address the security challenges of the modern age, and I am always looking for new ways to make a positive impact in this exciting and rapidly evolving field..
As an Internet security researcher, I have a background in information security and governance and specialize in measuring and improving the resiliency and stability of the Internet, particularly with regards to the abuse of internet identifiers. In my research, I utilize socio-technical approaches that combine big data analysis techniques and network science methods to better understand cybersecurity issues.
One key aspect of my research is the use of causal inference as a preferred research method. By utilizing causal inference, I am able to examine the relationships between variables and determine the extent to which changes in one variable are responsible for changes in another. This allows me to more accurately identify the causes and effects of different cybersecurity issues, and to develop more effective solutions.
My research aims to broadly understand how economic factors influence the decisions of different actors in response to security threats, and to improve society's understanding of information security failures and how they should be addressed. By increasing society's resilience to cybersecurity risks through more efficient and effective institutional and incentives structures, we can work towards a safer and more secure online environment. Additionally, I am passionate about data science and network security, and continually seek ways to use my expertise to make a positive impact in these areas.
