Before joining UAB as a Ph.D. student, I was at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT), Helsinki, Finland. HIIT is a joint research institute between Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. I was working as a researcher in the European Union FP7 PURSUIT Project. Previously, I also worked at Ericsson Research, Finland, as an external researcher from Aalto University.

I graduated with dual Masters, as a European Union Erasmus Mundus Scholar, from the NordSecMob program. I received my MS degrees from Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, and Aalto University (formerly Helsinki University of Technology, TKK), Helsinki, Finland.
