I am a PhD candidate at University of Twente, where I work in the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems (DACS) group at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS). I hold a Master of Computer Science with a specialization in Cyber Security.
My research is on Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks, with particular emphases on attack characterization and global mitigation solutions. Part of my research is done in collaboration with the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), based at University of California, San Diego, where I spent nine months as visiting researcher in 2017 and 2018.
I work on the award-winning OpenINTEL project, in which we measure a large part (~65%) of the Domain Name System (DNS) for academic research.
My research is primarily funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) through the project: Distributed Denial-of-Service Defense: protecting schools and other public organizations (D3).
