About Me

Welcome! My name is Christof Ferreira Torres!

I grew up in Luxembourg (a very tiny country located at the heart of Europe). I graduated at the University of Luxembourg, where I completed my Bachelor as well as my Master degree in Computer Science. My studies had a strong focus on IT security and adaptive computing (machine learning). Please have a look at my resume for more information.

I am currently living and working in Munich, Germany, as a security researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security (AISEC). My current research focuses on the security of mobile payment applications and topics related to blockchain technology. I am particularly interested in privacy enhancing technologies, whereas my main research interests are dedicated to online and mobile privacy.

Besides hacking and programming, I like dogs, traveling, photography and mountain biking.
