Hi, my name is Max! I am a twenty-two year old human from The Netherlands.

I have been studying computer science and computer security in The Netherlands, Finland and Sweden. You can read more about my story here.

Now

Currently, I am doing my Master's at both Aalto University and KTH, studying the Erasmus double degree programme in Security and Cloud Computing (SECCLO).

During the Spring semester of 2021, I live in Helsinki, where I am writing my Master's thesis with the Secure Systems Group at Aalto University. My thesis concerns research into attack-tolerant execution environments (in the context of speculative execution side-channel attacks). Next to this, I am wrapping up a research seminar on secure BGP routing protocols under Panos Papadimitratos.
