This is me!

My name is Martín. I am Research Associate at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, UK. I joined the Distributed Software Engineering (DSE) group in October 2014. My current research work focuses on intelligent protection mechanisms for cloud environments at run-time.

I am also a Principal Investigator at The AKD Project (Autonomic Knowledge Discovery), a STIC-AmSud project (2015-2016) involving 5 research teams located in France, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay. This collaboration effort aims at integrating knowledge discovery techniques into autonomic systems to deliver intelligent self-configuration and self-protection mechanisms.

In June 2014, I received a PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Lorraine, France. During my thesis (March 2011 - March 2014), I worked in the Madynes Research Team at INRIA (French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control), supervised by Prof. Dr. Olivier Festor and Dr. Rémi Badonnel. My thesis targets the design and development of novel approaches for managing vulnerabilities in autonomic networks and systems.

Prior to this, I received a Computer Engineering degree in 2010 after graduating from the University of the Republic, Montevideo, Uruguay. There, I am currently a member of the Computer Security group (GSI) at the Department of Computer Science (InCo) of the Engineering School. I have been a member of InCo since 2006. I also have 4 years of industry experience in the areas of network management and software development (March 2006 - March 2010).

My topics of interest include computer security, autonomic computing, vulnerability management, mobile and cloud computing, distributed computing, digital evidence and forensics, formal models and languages, Linux-based systems and TCP/IP networks administration, Java technologies, logic and database systems.
