    About me

    Since November 2017 I am a PhD student at the Chair of Software and Systems Engineering headed by Professor Pretschner. Currently, I'm working in the field of security hardening. Especially in the Windows context, I’m trying to create, apply and verify hardening rules automatically to reduce the surface of vulnerability of the system. Additionally, I’m also interested in model-driven tools and technologies.

    I received my master’s degree at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) where I wrote my master's thesis in the context of the VITRUVIUS project.

    Research Interests

    • Hardening
    • Security
    • Model-driven Software Development
