Visiting lecturer at UC3M Computer Security Lab
I am Computer scientist in the Computer Security Lab (COSEC) research group of the Computer Science Department of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. I am qualified as Associate Professor by the National Assessment Agency (ANECA). In the last years I have visited Fraunhofer AISEC and the University of Siegen, both in Germany. I am involved in different national research projects, currently related to cybersecurity and Internet-of-Things (IoT) security. In the past, I’ve been involved in the security and privacy of ad-hoc networks. I am part of the Editorial Board and Programme Committee of several journals and conferences, and I also served as Vicepresident of the Spanish chapter of the IEEE Intelligent Transport Systems Society.

I am interested in the underlying security and privacy issues of ad-hoc networks (mainly Vehicular Ad-hoc networks) and social networks. The most suitable use of cryptography in these environments is an interesting research field. I find these topics challenging to work on, specially due to their practical and real-life significance.
I've been working on authentication and privacy, non-repudiation and access control. Furthermore, I am currently moving to new research fields, particularly security in mobile devices (Data leakage prevention, risk assessment, continuous authentication) and cybersecurity (information sharing, detection and adaptive reaction).
