I am a post-doctoral researcher at IMDEA, under the supervision of Gilles Barthe, and working on proving concrete realizations and implementations of cryptographic primitives and protocols secure.
I was awarded a Ph.D. from the Open University on the 23rd of April 2013, for my dissertation on "Proving Cryptographic C Programs Secure with general-Purpose Verification Tools". It was written under the supervision of Andy Gordon, Jan Jürjens and Bashar Nuseibeh.
My current research interests are mainly in the formal verification of imperative programs, with a focus on computational cryptographic security properties.
In the past, I have worked on abstract interpretation and some aspects of programming and natural languages.
A more complete list of my publications is available here.
