Lázaro Janier González-Soler received his B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Havana, in 2014. Afterwards, he joined Advanced Technologies Application Center (CENATAV) from Havana, Cuba to Computer Science graduate training. Since 2019, he is a Ph.D. Student Member of da/sec group at the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity (ATHENE), Germany. His principal research interests are focused in areas of the Biometric and Machine Learning. Specifically, biometric Presentation Attack Detection for fingerprint, iris, and facial characteristics.
