I am a researcher at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University. I began my studies in Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University in 2009, received my B.Sc. degree in 2012, and graduated with M.Sc. degree in 2014. I then joined COMSYS as a researcher and PhD student in January 2015 and became part of the Security and Privacy as well as the Network Architectures research groups.

I am interested in security and privacy in communication systems especially focusing on today's prominent security protocols and the Internet of Things. In the project SSICLOPS, I am working on the privacy aware storage and handling of data in the cloud and federated clouds.
