Manuel Egele is Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University. His research interests span all areas of systems security — in particular mobile and embedded systems security, privacy, and malicious code analysis. 

Prior to his appointment at BU, he was a systems scientist at Carnegie Mellon University. Before that he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Computer Security Group of the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  From 2009 to 2011 he helped organize 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 an unmanned areal vehicle in the conference room of UCSB’s Computer Science Department. He received his M.Sc. (2006) and Ph.D. (2011) degrees in computer science from the University of Technology in Vienna.
