I am an Athene Young Investigator in Cryptography and 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
08.03.2021: I have been awarded to be an Athene Young Investigator starting 01.04.2021.
20.02.2021: Our paper BUFFing signature schmes beyond unforgeability and the case of post-quantum signatures (joint work with Cas Cremers, Samed Düzlü, Rune Fiedler and Marc Fischlin) hash been accepted to IEEE S&P 2021.
02.11.2020: Our paper Robust Channels: Handling Unreliable Networks in the Record Layers of QUIC and DTLS 1.3 (joint work with Marc Fischlin and Felix Günther) has been accepted as a contributed talk to RWC 2021.
