Mail: contact (at)

My name is Max Resing. I am a passionate computer science student who has a huge interest in networking & Internet data as well as data processing (platforms). Besides studying, I am a former full-stack developer employed by different medium-sized companies. My first job in the field of large-scale Internet measurements was at the University of Twente, supporting projects of OpenINTEL. My project team worked on a daily monitoring of the DNSSEC landscape in the TLDs of Switzerland and Lichtenstein. Since November 2022, I support the Netscout ASERT team as a Research Analyst in part-time. We work with cyber threat data on a global scale. The main focus is DDoS.

Next to my study and professional involvement, I like digging into many kinds of projects. I operate my own home lab, I dig into open data sets and build cool stuff.
