I am currently a scientific researcher at VISA Research. I am working on the design of post-quantum cryptography based on problems from coding theory and lattices as well as on oblivious transfer which is a basic building block of secure multi party computation.
Previously, I have been a postdoc at UC Berkeley in the group of Sanjam Garg. I received my PhD in 2016 from Ruhr-Universität Bochum under the supervision of Eike Kiltz on "Cryptography from Hard Learning Problems". I received a Diploma in computer science in 2012 from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
In my free time I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, but I also like cooking and I am active in my church community.
