General Information

I was a PhD student in the automation group of the Vienna University of Technology while at the same time beeing employed by Secure Business Austria. My PhD advisors were Christopher Kruegel and Engin Kirda. My main research interest was malware analysis, with a particular emphasis on dynamic analysis. I graduated in January 2010.

Projects

I was the founder and main developer the Anubis project. Anubis is a platform for the dynamic, automated analysis of malware that evolved from my master's thesis. I have developed Anubis and maintained its server infrastructure for more than three years.

During my master's thesis I developed the TTAnalyze program. TTAnalyze is the predecessor of Anubis. It is a tool for automatically analyzing the behavior of Windows PE-executables with special focus on the analysis of malware. My master's thesis describes the design and implementation of TTAnalyze.
