There are some upcoming calls for funding post-doctoral researchers.
If you are interested in applying with my group, drop me a email.

I have joined the IMDEA Sofware Institute in Madrid, Spain after receiving my Ph.D in ECE from Carnegie Mellon University.
I was advised by Professor Dawn Song.

My interest lies in Computer Security, Program Analysis, and Networking .
Currently, I develop program binary analysis techniques to address security issues in systems, software, and networks.
Some areas that interest me are Binary Analysis / Reverse Engineering, Web Security, Malware Analysis,
Fingerprinting, Anomaly Detection, and Intrusion Detection.

Prior to my Ph.D I received a Telecommunications Engineer degree from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) in 
Madrid, Spain and a M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in
Stockholm, Sweden.

In October 2003 I was awarded the La Caixa Foundation Fellowship, arguably the most prestigious fellowship for
international graduate studies awarded in Spain.

Starting in May 2002 and for two years I held positions as R&D Engineer and Systems Engineer in Orange (formerly Amena),
a spanish cell phone carrier.
