Dr.-Ing. Aurore Fass

I am a postdoctoral researcher at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. Prior to that, I was a PhD student in the Secure Web Applications Group at CISPA, jointly supervised by Ben Stock and Michael Backes.

Before joining CISPA, I was a master student at the French Grande Ecole TELECOM Nancy, where I had the honor to give the valedictorian speech (2017). In particular, I wrote my master thesis at the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) under the supervision of Isabelle Chrisment and Robert Krawczyk.

My PhD thesis revolves around studying JavaScript security through static analysis. In particular, my research interests include static code analysis, malware & vulnerability detection, machine learning, and adversarial attacks. I presented my research work at several academic and non-academic venues like CCS, ACSAC, DSN, DIMVA, RuhrSec, MADWeb, and Blackhoodie.
I am also a regular external reviewer at top academic venues such as USENIX Security, NDSS, CCS, Euro S&P, and ACSAC.
Finally, I am happy to supervise bachelor and master students in the scope of research projects and of our yearly web security seminar.
