I'm a Post Doc in the Agents Technology Group of Czech Technical (CTU) University in Czech Republic. I'm focusing on using machine learning to detect botnets behavior on large networks, on modelling the different behaviors of botnets and on capturing real botnet traffic. My most resent project is the Stratosphere IPS Project (

I obtained my PhD at the UNICEN University in Argentina (ISISTAN Institute). What I enjoy the most is to teach and research. I have been teaching and working on penetration testing and computer security for some time. My current interests are on network-based botnet behavior detection, machine learning, penetration testing, honeypots, malware detection, keystroke dynamics, bluetooth analysis, intruder detection and network analysis. I also enjoy looking at real malware traffic.
