About me

me, in 2012I am Martijn Grooten.

I work for Virus Bulletin in the UK, doing all sorts of security-related stuff, from running anti-spam tests to writing blog posts. I have a broad interest in security-related topics and have written and spoken about a number of them. I am occasionally quoted in the press.

I used to do mathematics. I have an M.Sc. degree from the University of Nijmegen and spent some years doing research in algebraic geometry. There is even publication to prove that.

I am on Twitter (which I love) and LinkedIn (which I loathe, kind of). In am on Facebook too and also on Skype.

I live in Greece. My passport is issued by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

In my spare time I enjoy history, literature, poetry, podcasts and cooking. I care about civil liberties. I like pretty things and kind people.
