I'm a post-doctoral network security researcher in the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems (DACS) group at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Maths and Computer Science (EEMCS) at the University of Twente, The Netherlands.
Currently, I coordinate the activities of the SAND project that is supported by SIDN, University of Twente, and NLNETLABS.
My background is in applied network security research, in particular, to investigate malware behaviors. In my master s degree, I studied botnet tracking mechanisms using network flows and malware analysis. You can find my master's thesis [here] (in Portuguese only), however, we have published few papers with the result of that research, see papers section.
During my Ph.D. I developed a malware analysis environment based on SDN (Software-Defined Networking). The idea is to manipulate the flows originated from malware to triggers unseen malware behaviors. You can find my Ph.D. thesis [here] (also in Portuguese), if you are interested check it out the papers section that we published associated with this subject.
Besides my research background, I used to work as a Security Analyst at Brazilian National CERT where we handle computer security incidents associated with Brazilian network address space, including phishing, DDoS, malware, and misconfigured services used in amplification attacks.
