Research Interests

The world we are living in consists of more and more interconnected "smart" devices. Cameras, sensors, and microcontrollers try to make life easier for us. However, this new comfort results in multiple security challenges. How to maintain privacy in an interconnected world? How to secure lightweight devices not capable of running heavy algorithms? How to secure existing networks against intruders?

In this context, I am especially interested in

  • IoT Security
  • Mobile Security
  • Network Security
  • Differential Privacy
