I am an assistant professor at Ruhr-University Bochum.

Update: I am currently recruiting two PhD students and one postdoc to work with me on software and network security at Ruhr University Bochum in Germany. Please reach out to me directly by email if you have any questions. Even if you do not see yourself in any of the advertised positions, please feel free to reach out. Descriptions of the positions are available:

My research focuses on network and Internet security, as well as general system and software security. I work primarily on improving the security and privacy of networked systems, which entails identifying and preventing large-scale Internet abuse, discovering and defending against new attacks (such as on network applications or enabled by network and protocol interactions), and developing techniques to conduct security-relevant measurements (like enabling Internet-wide measurements for IPv6; or, investigating how new security features affect the Internet). Naturally, I am also working on related topics, like understanding security misconfigurations and improving software analysis techniques. If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out by email.

I am a strong advocate for open science, especially open code and open data because I believe it is crucial to improve reproducibility of research.

When time permits, which has become quite rare, I enjoy participating in Security Capture the Flag competitions with Shellphish. Previously, I won third place with the Shellphish CGC team in the autonomous DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge.

My full academic CV is available here.

For more details, if you have any questions, please send me an email.
