Lieven Desmet

Who am I ?

I'm the Research Manager on Secure Software in the DistriNet Research Group at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), where I outline and implement the research strategy, coach junior researchers in (web) application security, and participate in dissemination and valorisation activities.

My main research interests are in (web) application security and software verification. I'm also involved in the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) as a board member of the Belgium OWASP Chapter.
