My name is Mattijs and I am a PhD candidate at the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems (DACS) chair at the University of Twente (UT). I hold a Master of Science in Computer Science with a specialization in security.

My doctoral research is on Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack mitigation, with a particular focus on cloud-based mitigation solutions. A description of my research can be found at the Centre for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT) Research Institute.

My areas of expertise include Internet measurements, network security, Big Data analytics, the DNS, intrusion detection, and flow-based network traffic monitoring and analysis.
