I am currently working as a senior researcher and lecturer at Technische Universität Darmstadt. More specifically, I am leading (area head) the Smart Protection in Infrastructures and Networks (SPIN) area of the TK lab. My research interests include collaborative intrusion detection, honeypots, botnet monitoring and alert data correlation.

I received a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2016 for my dissertation “On Collaborative Intrusion Detection”. Heretofore, I received my diploma (Dipl.-Inform.) and MSc (IT Security) from the University of the Aegean (Greece) in 2008 and 2011 respectively. My master thesis, in the area of honeypots, was conducted in cooperation with the National Center of Scientific Research “Demokritos”. Lastly, I worked as a researcher for AGT International, on the fields of cybersecurity as well as IoT security, from 2014-2015.
