Core Team


Antonio Hüseyin Barresi,

Antonio is a security researcher whose passion for computer security since a young age has motivated him to pursue different professional and academic roles within his field.

After graduating from ETH Zurich with a Master of Science in Computer Science, Antonio began his career as an IT Risk Officer for a large Swiss bank, gaining his first insight into IT risk management in banking environments.

To broaden his experience, in 2011 he joined a leading Swiss security engineering company as a Software Engineer, Integrator and Security Consultant. There, he soon progressed to Technical Project Leader and was responsible for managing a team of developers and engineers in the development of several security critical software components.

In 2013, Antonio began research on software, systems and run-time security for the Laboratory for Software Technology at ETH Zurich. During this time, he authored and co-authored different publications on software and virtualization security.

He has given several talks at international security conferences such as Black Hat, WOOT and Hacktivity.
