ABOUT ME

I'm a senior security researcher at the Malware-Lab, Cyber Security Research Center (CSRC) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. I pursued my Ph.D. studies between 2015-2019 in BGU’s Department of Information Systems Engineering. My Ph.D. research is aimed at the development of a triple-layered machine learning-based methodology for enhancing the security of E-mail ecosystem. I'm a co-author of several academic papers in the domain of malware detection. My main areas of interest are cybersecurity, machine learning, and data science.

MY LATEST RESEARCH

SFEMStructural Feature Extraction Methodology for the detection of malicious XML-based Office documents (*.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx, *.odt, *.ods, etc.) using Machine Learning methods.

Holistic analysis framework based on Machine Learning methods for the detection of malicious email. The framework analyzes all of the email's components (e.g., header, body and attachments).
