About Me

I am an information security researcher currently enrolled as a PhD student in the Computer Science Graduate School (CUGS) in Linköping University, Sweden. I have worked with research topics related to mobile, wearable and IoT security, and I am currently focused on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) security.
