I'm interested in everything related to the intersection of programming languages and security.
I received my doctoral degree from Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2016 while working in Mira Mezini's Software Technology Group on problem in the field of static analysis and security. In this time, I received the Software Campus grant for my research project PEAKS.The Software Campus initiative is a program for the development of Germany’s future senior IT executives.
Before this I worked for 5 years for a-tune software AG in Darmstadt as their Chief Architect. My team and I built enterprise software for highly-regulated environments based on a practical product line approach.
I studied at Technische Universität Darmstadt and received a Diploma (eq. to Master degree) in 2006.
