I am a full professor and head of the Computer Security and Privacy group at the University of Göttingen. Before moving to Göttingen, I was an assistant professor at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn in Germany from 2014-2017, leading the “Privacy and Security in Ubiquitous Computing” group at the Institute of Computer Science 4. I was also associated to the Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics (FKIE) during that time.

I completed my doctoral degree in computer science (with distinction) on privacy in participatory sensing in 2013 at Technische Universität Darmstadt and the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED). Since 2009, I hold a double-degree in electrical engineering from TU Darmstadt and Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Electronique et ses Applications (ENSEA), France.
