About me

I started studying computer science at Saarland University in October 2010, handing in my bachelor thesis in June 2013. Subsequently, I joined the Graduate School and became a PhD student in the Information Security and Cryptography Group under supervision of Michael Backes. I submitted my PhD thesis in November 2017 and received my PhD in July 2018. My PhD thesis has the title Quantifying and Mitigating Privacy Risks in Biomedical Data. In 2017, I joined the team behind Nimiq as a Blockchain Researcher and Core Developer. My topics of interest include privacy, security, and cryptography.

During my free time, I like traveling, climbing, and learning languages.
