I am an Assistant Professor for Cryptography at Ruhr University Bochum. Before moving to Bochum I was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University and Carnegie Mellon University working with Abhishek Jain and Vipul Goyal. In February 2017, I received my PhD in Computer Science from Saarland University, where I was advised by Dominique Schröder. During my PhD I was a research intern at Microsoft Research with Chris Brzuska. I was also a research visitor at University of Maryland, College Park with Jonathan Katz and Dana Dachman-Soled.
