General Information

I joined iSecLab in May 2007. My research interests cover most of what can be summarized under the term computer security. To name but a few topics, I am interested in and conducting research about botnets, network security, intrusion detection, Web security, and spam mitigation.

I have a degree in Technical Mathematics from Vienna Technical University. The work on my diploma thesis resulted in my first two scientific publications. After graduation I left university for three years to gather some job experience. During that time I worked as a software engineer at AIM Software, a medium sized Viennese company that produces a database frontend software for financial institutions.

Abroad

I spent six months as a visiting scientist in the Networking and Security group at Eurecom, France, from October 2008 to March 2009. During my master studies in 2002 I spent one semester at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, as an Erasmus exchange student.

Master Thesis

The title of my master thesis is Utilization of SIMD Extensions for Numerical Straight Line Code. The work was performed from February to December 2003, under the guidance of Prof. Christoph Ueberhuber at the Institute for Applied and Numerical Mathematics at Vienna Technical University. My thesis can be downloaded [here].
