Secretary of the Scottish Constituency

Involvement in SRUK/CERU

After graduating in Computer Engineering in Spain, I moved to Edinburgh to study the MSc in Advanced Security and Digital Forensics at Edinburgh Napier. During this first year at Napier, I got involved with ENUSEC Security Society and the cybersecurity community in Scotland, participating in diverse events like conferences, CTFs and social gatherings. After my masters, I led a 2-year research project at Napier, involving immersive learning and training in cyber security defence operations.

I started working as a security consultant in 2019, working on engagements related to web technologies, external infrastructure and internal network attacks. I am very interested in internal infrastructure testing and vulnerability research, and I aim to develop my career in that direction in the future.
