Lucian Cojocar

Currently, I work for Intel and tackling problems related to Rowhammer. Previously, I was a Post Doctoral Researcher in the Mobility and Networking Research group at Microsoft Research in Redmond. In 2019, I received my Ph.D. degree from VU Amsterdam in the VUSec group.

I have a broad interest in the security of computer systems. I currently focus on security problems that arise at the boundary between hardware and software. I work to increase the reliability of the DRAM memory sub-system with a focus on the Rowhammer problem. Previously, I worked on projects involving binary analysis and binary reverse-engineering.
