Personal Information

I studied Computer Science at the Technical University of Munich. At TUM I also did my Ph.D. with the topic of "Evaluating Network Security Using Internet-wide Measurements" which I completed with "summa cum laude" under the supervision of Georg Carle. In 2020 I joined Anja Feldman's Internet Architecture research group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics as a post-doc researcher.
