About me

As of September 2017, I am a CDT (PhD) student at Royal Holloway, University of London in the ISG group under the supervision of Lorenzo Cavallaro and Johannes Kinder.
The PhD is kindly sponsored by L3 TRL.
Before this, I finished a bachelor degree on both Computing Science (cum laude) and Mathematics (bene meritum) at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands.

During my undergraduate, I wrote my thesis at Royal Holloway, called Gamut: Sifting through Images to Detect Android Malware.


My interests lie within the offensive (low-level) computer security. I like to explore unorthodox methods in order to give a better understanding to what we're dealing with and to assess the quality of current state-of-the-art methods. Particular interests lie within software analysis, vulnerability exploitation, malware detection and malware obfuscation.

I like to think out-of-the-box (or "out-of-the-heap", if you will), trying to find new ways or methods people haven't thought of before. That is probably why I always enjoyed CTF-like challenges from e.g. HackThisSite. I now made one myself too, it is found at Think.OutOfTheHeap.com.
