I'm a PhD student at Hasselt University (Belgium) who is researching wireless security and privacy, machine learning, and cryptography. One of the main goals of my research is to connect these worlds in order to discover new security issues and ways to mitigate them.

During my PhD, I have performed research on MAC-layer privacy and security of Wi-Fi (802.11) amendments such as 802.11i, 802.11u, and 802.11n. I've also published about PHY-layer privacy of emerging protocols such as LoRa in context of device fingerprinting using Software Defined Radios and machine learning. More recently, I have been researching the application of AI to electromagnetic side-channel attacks on embedded devices.
