Matthias Vallentin

Short Bio

Matthias Vallentin I am doctoral student in computer science at UC Berkeley, where I have the good fortune of being advised by Vern Paxson. I also have an office at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), where I collaborate with folks from the networking and security group. Before moving to California, I received a B.S. and M.S. from the Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen.



My research concerns network security, with an applied focus on designing distributed systems for large-scale network forensics and high-performance network monitoring. More broadly, I am interested in studying real-world Internet traffic through the lens of security.


Recent publications and talks. See the research page for a complete list.



At UC Berkeley, I served as teaching assistant for the undergraduate computer security course (CS 161) in Spring 2011 and Spring 2013.
