Three researchers of the Telecooperation Lab have recently completed their disputations: Aidmar Wainakh, Nikolaos Alexopoulos and Sebastian Günther.
Aidmar Wainakh successfully completed his disputation in computer science for his thesis titled “On Privacy-Enhanced Distributed Analytics in Online Social Networks” on March 21, 2022.
His research within the RTG subarea B.2 was supervised by Prof. Dr. Mühlhäuser and mainly focused on enhancing the privacy aspect in OSNs through three research pillars: Online Social Network Architecture, Distributed Analytics Application and Threats to Distributed Analytics.

Nikolaos Alexopoulos successfully completed his disputation in computer science for his thesis titled “New Approaches to Software Security Metrics and Measurements” on March 22, 2022.
His research mainly focused on empirical studies aiming at improving software security metrics. Specifically, he proposed three new approaches to measure attributes of software security: vulnerability lifetimes, software maturity and human effort via reporter characteristics.
Sebastian Günther completed his disputation in computer science for his thesis titled “Somatosensory Interaction: Investigating Mechanoreception, Thermoception, and Proprioception for On-Body Haptic Feedback” on April 29, 2022.
His research focused on the haptic perception from different perspectives of the somatosensory system in the context of Human-Computer interaction, namely how humans perceive touch, temperature and proprioception as well as kinesthesia. For this, he designed and implemented novel interaction concepts and techniques in prototypical systems and investigated these concepts in several user studies.
The Telecooperation Lab wishes them all the best for their future!
