About me...

I am a manager and researcher specialised in cybersecurity. I hold a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University Autonoma of Madrid, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University Carlos III of Madrid, where I currently work as a Part Time Professor and affiliated researcher collaborating with the Computer Security Lab (COSEC). In addition, I have been the Head of the Cybersecurity Research Group at Indra (Spain), later Head of Product Innovation at Minsait, a special business unit in Indra. I am now Head of Cybersecurity Solutions, being in charge of conceptualizing innovative cybersecurity solutions, ensuring their novelty and suitability from a technological and business perspectives. To this end I also coordinate prototyping efforts as well as define cooperation strategies with the academia and other partners. I have been appointed Cybersecurity Specialist, acting as subject matter expert at Indra.

My main areas of expertise include applied cryptography, information sharing models, risk assessment and management, security evaluation methodologies (Common Criteria), software security assurance, attack modelling and categorisation, electronic signatures, PKI and non-repudiation. Notwithstanding, I am always interested in exploring new research trends and challenges in cybersecurity.

I regularly participate in standardisation efforts and high-level consultancy at international level. I am also involved in non-for profit activities in the international scientific community.
