I have been an IT engineer for more than 20 years, developer (mainly using C/C++, but also Python and Ruby) and instructor having more than a thousand-hour certified teaching experience in several Computer Science and Computer Security related fields.
I did my MPhil studies in the University of Cambridge and my PhD studies in the National Technical University of Athens having published more than 25 scientific papers in several international Journals and Conferences. For my academic research I have received several national and international distinctions, including the IEEE student award in INFOCOM 1994.
The last ten years I have been specialised in IT Security, working mainly as a penetration tester, incident handler and intrusion analyst. I hold several GIAC certifications (GCIH, GWAPT, GREM, GPEN, GCIA and GXPN) and I have been selected as a Giac Gold Adviser.
I have also discovered several bugs (like CVE-2012-4444, CVE-2012-2744, or some Suricata-related ones), as well as some unpublished.
