Radboud University
Faculty: Social Sciences

I am an assistant professor in cyber risk at Delft University of Technology, Faculty Technology Policy & Management, section Safety & Security Science. I studied computer science and philosophy of science, technology and society at the University of Twente, and wrote my interdisciplinary PhD "La volonté machinale: understanding the electronic voting controversy" at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Afterwards I advised the Dutch Ministry of the Interior on electronic voting and electronic travel documents. From September 2008 until December 2011 I worked in the VISPER project at the University of Twente, concentrating on disappearing boundaries in information security. In 2012 I was involved in the SESAME project at Delft University of Technology, addressing decision support for security investments in electricity infrastructures. Together with Prof. Pieter Hartel I set up the TREsPASS European project, on cyber security risk management in socio-technical systems, which started in November 2012. I was program chair of the 2010 CPDP workshop on Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing, program co-chair of the First International Workshop on Graphical Models for Security (GraMSec 2014), and co-organised the Dagstuhl seminars on Secure Architectures in the Cloud (2011) and Socio-Technical Security Metrics (2014). I published on electronic voting, verification of security properties, information risk management, and philosophy and ethics of information security.

In Nijmegen, he focuses on safety, (cyber)security and privacy in work environments, and the associated role of digital technology, behaviour, communication and organisational culture.
