I am as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor and head of the mo­bi­le se­cu­ri­ty group at Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum. Be­fo­re, I was a Post-doc­to­ral Re­se­ar­cher at Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum and a Post-doc­to­ral Scho­lar at the Theo­ry Group at the De­part­ment of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence of Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty. I re­cei­ved my PhD from the Saar­land Uni­ver­si­ty, Ger­ma­ny, where I was in the In­for­ma­ti­on Se­cu­ri­ty and Cryp­to­gra­phy Group at the Com­pu­ter Sci­ence De­part­ment, and I stu­died Math and Com­pu­ter Sci­ence at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Karls­ru­he, Ger­ma­ny.
