I am a PhD student in the Computer Security Group at ETH Zürich since 2022. My research interests include hardware and system security, safety, and formal methods.

Before joining ETH Zürich I spent several years as embedded software and firmware developer and as digital electronics verification engineer at CERN, as well as in the automotive and smart card industry.

I hold a BSc. in Software Engineering and and MSc. in Embedded Systems, both from TU Wien. For my master thesis, I received the Award of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from TU Wien and the TÜV Austria Science Award.

Besides securing computer systems I also like to bake and decorate cakes.
