About

I am a developer for data transfer technologies and security at the Audi Electronics Venture GmbH, a subsidiary of the Audi AG, focused on innovation and early development of automotive electronics. There, I am looking into middleware technologies and security questions for future automotive architectures. Further, I am a doctoral candidate at the Technical University Munich [TUM] and under the NTU-TUM Joint PhD Programme at the Nanyang Technological University [NTU]. My research interests are in the area of secure embedded communication and human-machine interfaces.

My hobbies relevant to and reflected on this website lie in areas adjacent to my research interests, mostly centered in the area of computer networks and computing applications.

I use this website to publish information about projects I am pursuing both professionally and in my spare time. It shall serve as a reference for myself and others, as reminder on where problems existed and how these problems have been solved and as a general overview over my work and interests.
