Max van Haastrecht
Max van Haastrecht is a PhD Candidate in Cybersecurity at the Leiden Institute for Advanced Computer Science (LIACS). He studied Econometrics at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG), where he specialised in Operations Research. He subsequently spent 1.5 years in industry as a data analyst for fraud detection. Before his current spell at LIACS, he spent the first period of his PhD at Utrecht University.
His research focuses on making cybersecurity measurable at small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Improving SME cybersecurity is the core goal of the European Horizon 2020 project GEIGER in which he is actively involved. He currently leads the validation work package of the project.
Besides his research, he thoroughly enjoys teaching and supervising students, and is always looking to improve his skills in this domain. Outside of work, he enjoys playing/coaching hockey, and helping at his community centre by teaching a computer course for beginners.
