Abbreviated CV:

Before joining BU, Professor Egele was a Systems Scientist at Carnegie Mellon University (CyLab). Prior to moving to Pittsburgh he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Computer Security Group at the Department of Computer Science of the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his Ph.D. in January 2011 from the Vienna University of Technology under his advisors Christopher Kruegel and Engin Kirda.

Prior to working as a post-doc he visited the Computer Security Group at UCSB as part of my Ph.D. studies. Similarly, he spent six months visiting the iSeclab’s research lab in France (i.e., Institute Eurecom). He was very fortunate to meet and work with interesting and smart people at all these locations, many of whom became good friends.

Professor Egele’s research interests include most aspects of systems security, such as mobile security, binary and malware analysis, and web security.

From 2009 to 2011 he helped organizing UCSB’s iCTF. In 2010 his was the first CTF that featured a challenge with effects on the physical world aka. cyber-physical system. More specifically, the teams had to control a foam missile launcher. In 2011 his team took this concept one step further and teams from around the globe could remote control a unmanned areal vehicle in the conference room of UCSB’s Computer Science Department. Before being part of the organizing team for the iCTF he participated as part of the We_0wn_Y0u team of the Vienna University of Technology, as well as on the team of the Institute Eurecom. Furthermore, he participated as part of the Shellphish team at several DefCon CTF competitions in Las Vegas.
