Personal Information

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for IT Security, Privacy and Accountability (CISPA) at Saarland University. Previously, I was a PhD student and research fellow at the Security Research Group of the University Erlangen-Nuremberg. My research interests lie within Web Security and Malware Analysis. I also enjoy the challenges provided in Capture-the-Flag contests.
I offer thesis in the general area of Web and network security. If you are interested in these areas, please contact me to discuss potential topics.
