I am a Data scientist with SIDN Labs work on Internet measurements and Systems and a Research Guest at the Cyber Security group at Delft University of Technology, in The Netherlands.

Research and Interests

I work on research projects that involve Internet Architecture, DNS, DDoS protection, IP anycast, and Network Security. I am also an active member of the Internet measurements community, besides the IETF/IRTF and DNS-OARC.
