    About me

    Since November 2017 I am a PhD student at the Chair of Software and Systems Engineering headed by Professor Pretschner. The focus of my research is the field of security-configurations. Security can be cumbersome and dangerous, e.g., if one lost the key for an encrypted hard drive, one could not recover the data and there are lost forever. Thus, most of the nowadays systems are configured insecurely and open for attacks. To overcome this problem, we are working on methods to assess the state of a system regarding its security-configuration and to configure the system to be as secure as possible. Thereby, we created our hardening process to be as automated as possible so that it can be used in the context of DevOps, too. Additionally, I’m also interested in model-driven tools and technologies.

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