Third year PhD Student

Ruhr University Bochum


I am a PhD student at Ruhr University Bochum under the supervision of Eike Kiltz and Peter Schwabe. My current research concerns post-quantum public key cryptography with a particular focus on isogeny based cryptosystems. My second research area involves computational models like the Algebraic Group Model.

I served as a reviewer for the following conferences:

  • CRYPTO 2023
  • TCC 2023
  • ESORICS 2023

In my free time I enjoy taking photos, especially of insects.

  • Post-Quantum Cryptography
  • Public Key Cryptography
  • Isogenies
  • Complexity Theory
  • M.Sc. in Computer Science, 2021

    Karlsruher Institute of Technology

  • B.Sc. in Computer Science, 2018

    University of Lübeck
