I am professor for Cryptography and Privacy Engineering (ENCRYPTO) at the Department of Computer Science of Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany.

Before, I was independent Claude Shannon research group leader at the Center for Research in Security and Privacy (CRISP), formerly European Center for Security and Privacy by Design (EC SPRIDE), and postdoc at the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED). I did my PhD at the Horst Götz Institute for IT Security (HGI) at Ruhr-University Bochum.

My research focuses on privacy, cryptographic protocols, applied cryptography, and computer security.
