Research


During the last two decades, I developed a deep and genuine interest in communication networks, network security, and privacy. Currently, I am a PhD candidate supervised by Tanja Zseby at Vienna University of Technology, where I am a member of the communication networks group at the Institute of Telecommunications. Before starting my PhD, I received a Bachelor's as well as a Master's degree in Computer Engineering from Vienna University of Technology. Before my studies, I was working as system engineer at an Internet service provider for several years.

My research interests span various areas of secure digital communications, such as secure group communication (i.e., broadcast and multicast), anonymous communication, covert communication, and subliminal communication. I am interested in the theoretical foundations of secure digital communications as well as in their applications, such secure time synchronization, smart grid security, or security in 5G networks.
