I am tenure-track faculty (= Assistant Professor) at the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy (MPI-SP) where I am the head of the Cryptographic Systems group. My research focuses on mathematical aspects of asymmetric cryptography. I am also broadly interested in the intersections with other disciplines, e.g., computer security, cryptocurrencies, concurrent systems, formal methods, game theory, and quantum computing.
Prior to joining MPI-SP, I was a PostDoc with a joint appointment at UC Berkeley (working with Sanjam Garg) and at Carnegie Mellon University (working with Vipul Goyal). In fall 2019 I was a research fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing. I completed my Ph.D. in June 2019 at Friedrich-Alexander University under the supervision of Dominique Schröder.

I have an opening for a Ph.D. or PostDoc position on quantum cryptography and quantum information theory, to be jointly supervised with Michael Walter. If you are interested, don't hesitate to reach out!
RESEARCH GROUP @ MPI-SP
My research group is supported in part by grants from the BMBF, CASA cluster of excellence for cyber security, and Protocol Labs. Below is a list of the current members.
I served (or will serve) as a program committee member for the following conferences:
(2022) ASIACRYPT, EUROCRYPT, PKC, S&P (Oakland)
(2021) CCS, CVC, PKC
(2020) CRYPTO, CVC, SBC
I also served as a reviewer for the Journal of Cryptology, for the European Research Council, and for the Israeli Science Foundation.
