I'm an assistant professor at the University of Porto. I work in network security and AI, mostly looking at sidechannel attacks on encrypted traffic for privacy protection and for malware C2 traffic detection. I'm particularly keen to understand the adversarial nature of these attacks and their 'AI on big data' challenges. I'm looking for collaborations where we can team up efforts to actively tackle these challenges.
