I am a researcher and PhD student at Klaus Wehrle‘s Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems (COMSYS) at RWTH Aachen University since 2012. After having finished my Diploma studies (equiv. M.Sc.) of Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University in 2011, I interned at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg. In early 2012 I returned to RWTH Aachen University.
My research focuses on security and privacy in communication systems and especially the cloud. Currently, I am working within the projects IPACS and SensorCloud on the secure and privacy-aware storage and processing of sensor data in the cloud. In my spare time I am volunteering as chairman of the alumni club of the students representation for Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University (VAMPIR e.V.). In 2011, I received the award of the Computer Science Department at RWTH Aachen University for outstanding achievements as students representative.
