About me

Since August 2018, I am a research associate and doctoral candidate at the chair of Prof. Pretschner. In summer 2018, I was awarded the Master of Science in Informatics (with high distinction) from TU Munich. During my studies, I spent half a year at the lab of Prof. Tokuyama at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, as a Special Research Student. I gained practical experience in multiple companies as a working student and intern before and during my studies. I am a passionate participant in hackathons, intrigued by formal methods, and convinced of the importance of equal rights and chances for all people.

Research

My ORCiD and profiles on Scholar and dblp.

From 2018–2022, I conducted research in the publicly funded project  Inverse Transparency (project website of the BMBF ministry) in a consortium with the ISF Munich, the LMU (DMM) and the Software AG. My current research builds on our project results and evolves them.

In my research, I touch upon the following subjects:

  • (Data) Privacy and Security
  • Technology Social Factors
  • User Trust and Usability
