After having completed my diploma degree in Computer Science, I work as a researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Prof. Hartenstein's Decentralized Systems and Network Services research group at the Institute of Telematics and in the department of Services, Development and Integration (DEI) of the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC). During my studies, I focused on telematics as well as on cryptography and security. During my study and diploma thesis, I investigated various aspects of the cloud computing paradigm and developed concepts that allow for secure and efficient database outsourcing.
My field of functions at the SCC was located within projects regarding the establishment of a state-wide federated identity and access management (see the bwIDM project) as well as the minimal invasive integration of existing services. Furthermore, I worked in the competence center for applied security technology (KASTEL).
In June 2015, I finished my PhD and continued working at Prof. Hartenstein's research group as a post-doc. During my research, I focused on the question how software and IT systems can cope dynamically with trade-off relationships between security and other quality properties like efficiency. My dissertation "Tunable Security for Deployable Data Outsourcing" has been published by the KIT Scientific Publishing in 2015.
