About me

I am a PhD student at the Chair of Software Engineering at TU Munich headed by Prof. Alexander Pretschner. Previously, I received a MSc. degree in Computer Science in 2010, from University of Ulm. My research interest are focused on Distributed Usage Control and Information Flow Analysis/Control within the domain of Service Oriented Systems. 

Bachelor- and Master-Thesis Topics

Please contact me if you are interested in doing your Bachelor-Thesis, Master-Thesis, or guided research project in the field of Usage Control (or Information Flow Control) under my supervision. If you have your own idea for a thesis topic which is related, please feel free to contact me.
