Since November 2016, I am a PhD student in the Applied Cryptography Group at FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg where Dominique Schroeder is my advisor. Prior to my PhD studies I have published in the area of System Software Engineering (SOSP’11), Coalgebraic Modal Logic (CONCUR’16) and Anonymous Communications (RAID’13).

My recent research interests include the characterization of cryptographic primitives using (computational) notions of entropy as well as understanding and improving the structure of cryptographic proofs.

I have been an intern researcher at UC Santa Barbara with Chris Krugel and Giovani Vigna in 2012 and at TU Vienna with Pedro Moreno Sanchez and Matteo Maffei in 2018.

Outside academia, I am a Debian Developer and have contributed to free software projects including the git version control system and the linux kernel.
