After obtaining my Degree in Physics by the University of Granada (UGR) in 1986, my professional activity began there through three two research grants at the Computer and Network Center of the University of Granada(CSIRC). PhD in the Programme in Information and Communication Technologies of the University of Granada with a thesis work about criptoransomware detection.
I joined then the Computer and System Lenguages at 1989, until the date. I'm member of the Research Group NESG (Network and Security Engineering (
My current teaching and research interests focus on the field of operating systems security and Digital Forensic. I teach several subjets related to the indicated matters in the studies of Degrees of Computer Science, Crimonology, and the Professional Master in Cyber Security of the UGR.
Last completed project was "MDSM: Gestión Dinámica de la Seguridad de Dispositivos Móviles - MINECO -TIN2017-83494-R" y el de equipamiento científico-tecnológico "Laboratorio Avanzado de Investigación en Ciberseguridad (ACyR-Lab, Advanced Cybersecurity Research Lab) - MINECO - EQC2018-004692-P".
I'm currently part of the project "SICRAC - Self-Sovereign Identity Collaborative Credentials for Access Control in IoT" (PID2020-114495RB-I00) whre the primary objective of the project is to develop solutions for the utilization of collaborative credentials in self-sovereign identity models applied to IoT environments and evaluate their viability and impact.
