This website is no longer updated. Please see my new website for more information.

I was a doctoral researcher (2015/02 – 2020/09) and member of the Cryptography and Privacy Engineering Group (ENCRYPTO) at the Department of Computer Science of Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany.

In November 2020, I started as a postdoctoral researcher at CISPA.

My research focuses on the design and evaluation of efficient and secure private function evaluation protocols.

Besides, my interests include secure multi-party computation, graph theory, and countermeasures against fault attacks and side-channel analysis.
