Curriculum Vitae

Post­doc­to­ral Re­se­ar­cher (CASA, Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum) Dr.-Ing. (Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum) Doc­to­ral Re­se­ar­cher (In­for­ma­ti­on Se­cu­ri­ty Group, Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum) M.​Sc. Ap­p­lied Com­pu­ter Sci­ence (Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum)


My re­se­arch fo­cu­ses on an­ony­mi­ty and pri­va­cy en­han­cing tech­no­lo­gies. In par­ti­cu­lar, I am in­te­rested in di­stri­bu­ted com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on sys­tems that allow to pro­tect sen­si­ti­ve in­for­ma­ti­on, e.g., use iden­ti­ties, even in the pre­sence of lar­ge-sca­le ad­ver­sa­ries. Ex­am­ples of these are traf­fic ana­ly­sis at­tacks against Tor or LTE net­works, as well as coun­ter­me­a­su­res against this. Fur­ther as­pects of my re­se­arch cover human as­pects of such sys­tems.
