About Me

I am an experienced researcher and system architect in computer security. I love to find out how things could go wrong, and how to design systems better in order to have them behave as intended. I apply this passion to design and analyze security architectures for customers, research projects, or just for fun, and to guide development teams into meeting the corresponding security requirements. With over a decade of experience in academic and industry-oriented research & development projects, including as team leader and project manager, and having (co-)authored over 50 scientific and technical papers on the relevant subject, my mission and commitment is to drive technical innovation in computer security, in particular system security, and to make real systems more secure. I am a great fan of science-fiction and fantasy stories, and I enjoy to share time with my wife and to improve our skills in guiding our dogs so that they behave as intended, too.
