Short Biography
After receiving my M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University with honors, I joined the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University as a researcher and Ph.D. student in January 2019.

My research centers around leveraging the capabilities of novel programmable networking hardware for improving network performance. For example, I am interested in approaches targeting network buffers and queues (AQM), network monitoring, as well as transport protocols and congestion control.
As part of my current position in the excellence cluster Internet of Production, I further study the applicability of in-network computing concepts to networks with strict requirements, e.g., the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or the industrial production domain. In this context, I also contribute to the IRTF COIN research group. 

For my contributions to the EuroSys 2021 Shadow PC, I was awarded the Distinguished Shadow PC Reviewer Award.
