Short Biography

Short Biography

I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University (Germany). I began my studies in Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University in 2002 and graduated with Diploma degree (equiv. M.Sc.) in 2009. I then joined the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems as a Researcher and PhD Student. In July 2015, I completed my PhD.

During my studies, I received a short-term study diploma (with honours) at the University of Kent at Canterbury (England) in 2006. My stay abroad was supported by the Erasmus exchange program. I worked on my diploma thesis at the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) in Finland supported by a scholarship of the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) in 2008. My Diploma thesis covers the topic of providing efficient identity-based security functions on in-network elements and was awarded with the Ericsson-UMIC-Diploma Thesis Award in 2009. My PhD thesis revolves around the topic of resource-conscious network scenario for the embedded Internet of Things. My research interests comprise mobile and wireless networking, secure end-to-middle communication as well as efficient network security for the IP-based Internet of Things. I am actively involved in the standardization process of security-related topics at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

Third-Party Funded Research Projects

Third-Party Funded Research Projects

As part of my work at COMSYS, I was and still am involved in the acquisition, the organization, and the development of several third-party funded research projects. The list below shows the funded research projects that I have actively contributed to during the project phase.

SensorCloud (2012 - 2014)

funded by BMWi within the Trusted Cloud framework
The project SensorCloud is a collaboration of the Chairs of Computer Science 3 and 4 at RWTH Aachen University, with three partners from academia and industry. It is a joint effort to securely integrate two recent trends in computer science: the Internet of Things (also known as Cyber-Physical-Systems) and Cloud Computing.

For further information, visit our project website or www.sensorcloud.de.

Mobile ACcess (2009 - 2012)

funded by Ziel2.NRW and the ERDF of the European Union
The project Mobile ACcess is a collaboration of the Chairs of Computer Science 4 and 8 at RWTH Aachen University with seven municipal and industrial partners including the cities of Aachen and Monschau. It is a joint effort to show the feasibility and practicability of a city-wide network consisting of individual access networks united by a novel concept for Wi-Fi sharing communities.

For further information, visit our project website or www.mobile-access.org.
