Mario Kahlhofer


Mario is enthusiastic about cyber security and data science and is currently working on methods that spot hackers in cloud-native environments. He is an experienced CTF player and previously worked on predicting performance events from large-scale time series data during his Computer Science studies at the Johannes Kepler University Linz.

Joining the Dynatrace team in February 2020 as a Data Scientist, he is now highly motivated to work on the interface between the application security needs that we see in the cloud-native space here at Dynatrace and enrich and contribute to the ongoing efforts within the academic research community.

As one of our first PhD students in the research lab, he will set a specific focus on detecting multi-step attacks in cloud-native environments with adaptive cyber deception.
