About The Speaker
Gibran Alberto Gómez Montez
Gibran Alberto Gómez Montez is a Ph.D. student at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and a research assistant at the IMDEA Software Institute, working under the supervision of Dr. Juan Caballero. During his Ph.D., he developed novel methodologies for identifying malware families that misuse the TLS security protocol and threat intelligence tools for extracting, collecting, and evaluating IOCs. He has also developed tracing techniques and classifiers for blockchain analysis. On one hand, these techniques enable tracing malicious operations that abuse the Bitcoin blockchain, allowing the identification of economic relations between them and other entities, which aids their attribution. On the other hand, they lead to better revenue estimations. He obtained a Computer Engineering degree from the Technological University of the Mixteca (UTM) and an M.Sc. in Software and Systems from UPM. His research interests encompass computer security, malware analysis, blockchain technologies, and machine learning.
