Research Homepage

I am a faculty at the Helmholtz Center for Information Security (CISPA) in Saarbrücken, here's a link to the site of my research group. The focus of my research is public key encryption and secure two-party computation.

From 2017 to 2018 I was assistant professor at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen Nürnberg. Prior to that, I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley, being hosted by Sanjam Garg supported by a DAAD fellowship.  From 2014 to 2016 I was a postdoc at Aarhus University, hosted by Ivan Damgård and Jesper Buus Nielsen. I finished my PhD in 2014 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, where I was supervised by Jörn Müller-Quade. My PhD thesis won the biennial Erika and Dr. Wolfgang Eichelberger Dissertation Award
