Henry Clausen

I am a PhD-graduate from the University of Edinburgh. I am currently working on Windows process data for the Alan Turing Institute, and my areas of interest include deep learning, data science, as well as vulnerability and intrusion detection. In my freetime, I like to challenge myself physically in sports such as Jiu-Jitsu, sailing, or running. My passion is electronic music, where I attempt to find my own style.

Work Experience

• I am currently conducting a short-term project for the Alan Turing Institute in London where I investigate security risks if cyber-log data falls in the hands of adversaries, and how to produce effectively anonymised datasets.

• I have conducted a research placement in the BT labs, where I investigate scalable solutions for proxy-detection in the wild.

• I was advising OLZ & Partners as a technical consultant in 2016, where I implemented and compared portfolio optimization algorithms for complex constraints.


• I did my PhD in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, where I was supervised by David Aspinall. I was part of the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science (LFCS) and the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation (ANC).

• I received a sponsorship from British Telecom, where I collaborated with the Future Cyber Defence lab under Alex Healing's supervision.

• I received my M.Sc. in Statistics from Imperial College London in 2017.

• I received an M.Sc. and a B.Sc.in Physics from ETH Zurich in 2016 and 2013.

Computer Skills

• I implemented the R-C++-library MMPPsampler, which can be downloaded via R-CRAN.

• I analyse data and implement models mainly with Python using Pandas, PyTorch and SKlearn. The most beautiful plots are in my opinion created with ggplot2.

• More specialised tools I use are Spark for large data processing, Docker for creating network communication scenarios, Scapy for processing network traffic, and Kali-Linux for attack analysis.


German is my mother tongue.

• I am fluent in English.

• Mi español esta mejorando.

• Je parle un peu français.
