I am fascinated by the fact that through high-quality security research we are actually protecting civil society.

Security Researcher and assistant professor. Head of Cybersecurity Group called Stratosphere Lab, director of joint AIC/Avast Lab and holder of the Avast Chair position. I believe in Free Software as the basis of a free Internet society. Machine learning for behavioral models from network traffic of botnet, malware and normal traffic. Malware execution, dataset creation, malware for IoT, ML detection models, networks patterns analysis, keystroke dynamics, web anomaly detection, data analysis, machine learning algorithms, hackspaces and amateur robotics.

I am fascinated by the fact that through high-quality security research we are actually protecting civil society.

As a teacher I believe in an education where students decide what, where and when to learn and teach themselves. The only difference between the teacher and the student is that the teacher knows how to learn better. I also believe that a high motivation and strong connection with the students is the best way to reach their hearts.

Computational Propaganda

Computational Propaganda

Propaganda, fake news, and misinformation are not just social science topics. Our security research deals with so-called computational propaganda. In addition to politics, algorithms and automation are increasingly entering communication. Learn how they are being exploited.
