Martina Lindorfer is a tenure-track assistant professor at TU Wien, which she joined at the end of 2018, and a key researcher at SBA Research, the largest research center in Austria which exclusively addresses information security. She received her PhD from TU Wien in 2016 and spent two years as a postdoc at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research and outreach activities have been recognized with the ERCIM Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award, the ACM CyberW Early Career Award for Women in Cybersecurity Research, as well as the Hedy Lamarr Award from the City of Vienna.

Her research focuses on applied systems security and privacy, with a special interest in automated static and dynamic analysis techniques for the large-scale analysis of applications for malicious behavior, security vulnerabilities, and privacy leaks. Building on her background on malware analysis, she currently focuses on the analysis of mobile apps to enable transparency and accountability in the way they process and share private information. The resulting tools help uncover new and unexpected ways in which apps are violating users’ privacy expectations.
