Research Interest

He is mainly interested in system security with special emphasis on malicious code detection and analysis (malware & exploits), vulnerability discovery, reversing and web security.

Bio

He is working towards his master’s degree in Software Engineering & Internet Computing at the TU Wien. In summer 2015, he was working as security engineer at Google (Mountain View, California) performing security audits and improving their malware analysis systems with new detection techniques.
