Sebastian obtained his Master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2010 and Diploma in Mathematics from TU Darmstadt in 2012. He then went on to work as a Quantitative Finance analyst at Ernst & Young and then as a software developer at nterra. In late 2015, he decided to go back into academics, pursuing his PhD in the field of Genomic Privacy at TU Darmstadt, where he studies privacy-preserving techniques for the analysis of genomic data. Secure Multi-Party Computation is the main focus of his PhD studies. He was also involved as CTO in a Blockchain-Startup in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2017/18. Since late 2018, he joined the Applied Cryptography research group at TU Darmstadt to lead the implementation of the Perun Protocols.
