I am currently working as a researcher in the Security and Privacy research group at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University.
I received a Diploma (with honors) in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University in 2011. From 2011 to 2012, I worked as a freelance Data Analyst for Zalando GmbH in Berlin focussing on data mining and machine learning. I started my PhD in 2012, working at Philips Research, Eindhoven, Netherlands for one and half years. In October 2013, I returned full time to RWTH Aachen University.
My research focuses on engineering privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) based on secure two- and multiparty computation, anonymization technologies (e.g., Differential Privacy) and other advanced cryptographic primitives. Currently, I am working in the NEPTUN project on modelling PETs for users with no background in technology. Previously, I worked on security and privacy challenges in distributed sensing (PREserv project) and in smart lighting systems (Philips Research).
