The real voyage of discovery lies in not seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes. (Marcel Proust)

I am an Assistant Professor at the Security Group of the Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Netherlands. I investigate attacker operations ([1], [2]) and economics ([3], [4]) to improve operational defense capabilities ([5], [6]). My research draws from several fields, including computer security, economics, risk analysis, and criminology. I manage the B-LAB and Security Operation Center Laboratories @ TU/e.
