I am working as a researcher at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University. As of October 2015, I am heading the Security and Privacy group. After having finished my Diploma studies (equiv. M.Sc.) of Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University in 2011, I interned at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg. There I worked with Andriy Panchenko and Andreas Zinnen (now: RheinMain University of Applied Sciences) on website fingerprinting in anonymization networks. In early 2012 I returned to RWTH Aachen University.

My research focuses on security and privacy in large-scale communication systems and especially the cloud. Currently, I am working within the IPACS project on the privacy-aware storage and processing of Internet of Things data in the cloud. Previously, I worked on security challenges of outsourcing sensor data to the cloud in the context of the SensorCloud project. In my spare time I am volunteering as chairman of the alumni club of the students representation for Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University (VAMPIR e.V.). In 2011, I received the award of the Computer Science Department at RWTH Aachen University for outstanding achievements as students representative within the Computer Science Department and RWTH Aachen University.
