I am a researcher between the field of network measurement using large-scale datasets, computer security and human factors in computer security (especially system administration). My current research projects include work on using DNS for security measurements, investigations of IPv6 deployment (and security), and, large-scale misconfiguration on the internet and the human factors that contribute to them. In addition to that, I also enjoy interacting with students, either in giving lectures or in supervising thesises and projects. Besides my academic interests, I am also a successful freelance system and network engineer, experienced in improving the maintainability, security, and resillience of complex infrastructures.
