Irfan is an Assistant Professor at FAST NUCES CFD campus. He has obtained his PhD in Software, Systems and Computing from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Madrid, Spain. He worked as a research assistant at IMDEA Software Institute (software.imdea.org) under the supervision of Juan Caballero. His research work focused on identifying malware lineage from the packed malware samples. Before his PhD, he did his Masters in Information Technology with specialization in computer networks from NUST, Pakistan.
His research interests lie in computer and network security. Some of the areas that he has been working on for a while are: malware analysis, binary code similarity, intrusion detection, reverse engineering.
