About Me

Responsive image

I'm an assistant professor in the Digital Security Group of the Radboud University in Nijmegen (NL). Before this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Systems Security Chair of the Ruhr University Bochum within the excellence cluster for Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries CASA.

My research focuses on information leaks in privacy enhancing technologies. One example of this is Tor, where the persisting threat of traffic analysis attacks remains and open issue and motivates research on new offensive and defensive techniques. Besides dedicated anonymity systems, I am also interested in the consequences of transferring well-known attacks to new contexts like LTE.
