Curriculum Vitae


I am an assistant professor at Ruhr-University Bochum.

My research focuses on network and Internet security, as well as general system and software security. I work primarily on improving the security and privacy of networked systems, which entails identifying and preventing large-scale Internet abuse, discovering and defending against new attacks (such as on network applications or enabled by network and protocol interactions), and developing techniques to conduct security-relevant measurements (like enabling Internet-wide measurements for IPv6; or, investigating how new security features affect the Internet). Naturally, I am also working on related topics, like understanding security misconfigurations and improving software analysis techniques. If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out by email.

I am a strong advocate for open science, especially open code and open data because I believe it is crucial to improve reproducibility of research.
