Short Bio

I am Cristian, a tenure-track faculty at CISPA – Helmholtz Center for Information Security. I completed my PhD in the Software Lab group at TU Darmstadt, Germany under the supervision of Michael Pradel. Prior to that, I obtained my Master's from EIT Digital, a European double degree Master's program. Concretely, I studied one year at the University of Twente, Netherlands and one year at University of Trento, Italy. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Politehnica University of Timișoara, Romania. My core research interest is in system security, at the intersection of software/web security, software engineering and programming languages. One of the central goals of my research group is to directly contribute to the open-source ecosystem: either by building tools that can be used by practitioners or by uncovering security vulnerabilities in real systems/projects.
