I joined the Data Management Lab in September 2017 and since then have been involved in several teaching activities and research projects.
My main research field lies in the intersection of blockchain and database technology. I work on new techniques to realize the abstraction of a shared database that enables multiple untrusted parties to share and manage data in a decentralized manner. I am also a member of the which aims at developing new secure as well as decentralized solutions and offers consulting & training for industry partners. Further, I am part of the Center for Secure Distributed Ledgers and Contracts. National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE
I have supervised multiple student projects and theses in my research area and have been the lead TA for basic and advanced database courses offered at our lab.
Before starting my PhD at TU Darmstadt, I worked for about two years at IBM Germany as a Cloud Solutions Architect and was responsible for designing enterprise IaaS Cloud solutions. I hold a Master's degree in Applied Computer Science from the University of Heidelberg and a B.Sc. in Business Informatics.
Besides databases and DB research, I am interested in all kinds of sports. I have a passion for playing football and recently, I have started to play squash.
