Short CV

I am a researcher and PhD student at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems since September 2019. Before, I graduated as M.Sc. in Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University in July of the same year. I am part of both the Security and Privacy Group and the Cyber-Physical Systems Group with my research interest covering all aspects of security in the (Industrial / Infrastructure) Internet of Things. Currently, my work focuses in particular on retrofitting security mechanisms for resource-constrained and legacy devices using programmable switches.

In June 2020, I received the 1st prize of the Women's STEM Award sponsored by Deutsche Telekom AG for my master’s thesis on "Advanced In-Network Security for Smart Devices". In May 2019, I was awarded the 1st prize of the Female Student Travel Award 2019 by the Collaborative Research Center MAKI (Multi-Mechanisms Adaptation for the Future Internet) in recognition of my academic performance.


I am/have been involved in various teaching activities at RWTH Aachen University. These include supervising topics in our preseminar and seminar courses as well as working as a teaching assistant for our basic and advanced lectures (e.g., Data Communication and Security and Advanced Internet Technology). Furthermore, I supervised several student projects in our Research Focus Classes (Cyber-Physical System Security, In-Network ProcessingSecuring Industrial Networks), and I regularly offer individual topics for bachelor’s and master’s theses. Besides, in WS 2020/2021, I have been employed as a part-time lecturer for Sicherheit in Datennetzen (B course) at FH Aachen.

If you are interested in writing your thesis with me, please drop me a short mail with your motivation and concrete interests under consideration of our general recommendations regarding available theses
