Biography ~ Recent Publications ~ Older Publications ~ Talks


Short-bio: I am a Data Scientist with SIDN Labs, the research arm of SIDN, the Netherland’s .nl top-level domain operator. I am also an Assisant Professor at TU Delft’s CyberSecurity group. My research focus on bringing academic rigor to network operations, to improve performance, security and stability of networked systems.
