I am an Athene Young Investigator in Cryptography and Information Security affiliated to the Cryptoplexity team led by Marc Fischlin at Technische Universität Darmstadt in which I have been a Postdoc before as well.
Prior to this I was a Ph.D. student in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London under the supervision of Carlos Cid. It all began at Universität Bremen where I studied mathematics and completed my diploma in the AlZAGK group under the supervision of Michael Hortmann.
I am a member of the IACR and my Erdös number is 3.
My main (current) research interests are:
verifiable outsourced computations
24.10.2022: I have been invited to serve on the PC for SSR 2023.
13.07.2022: Our paper Sponge-based Authenticated Encryption: Security against Quantum Attacks (joint work with Patrick Struck) has been accepted to PQCrypto 2022.
08.12.2021: Our paper Post-quantum asynchronous deniable key exchange and the Signal handshake (joint work with Jacqueline Brendel, Rune Fiedler, Felix Günther, and Douglas Stebila) has been accepted to PKC 2022.
