I am a faculty at the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security since August 2018. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor at the Information Systems Technology and Design Pillar, at the Singapore University of Technology and Design ( SUTD). I earned my Dr. Sc. in Computer Science from ETH Zurich (Switzerland) in 2012. At ETH, I was part of the System Security group led by Prof. Srdjan Capkun. Before my studies at ETH, I received a degree in Computer Engineering (Dipl. Ing.) from the Hamburg University of Technology (Germany) in 2007. My thesis on side-channel attack-resistant embedded crypto was supervised by Prof. Dieter Gollmann (TUHH), and Dr. Heike Neumann (NXP). The thesis won the K-H Ditze award for TUHH’s best thesis in 2007. I was also awarded a DAAD scholarship to study for one year at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada between 2004-2005.
