Biography

I am a Ph.D student in Security Engineering at University College London (UCL)  under the supervision of Prof. George Danezis and Prof. Jens Groth. I hold a master degree in Electrical Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), a master degree in Electrotechnik und Informationstechnik from Karlsruhe Institute of Technologies (KIT), and a third master degree in Information Security from University College London.

My research interests are in privacy enhancing technologies, distributed ledgers, and FPGA-based security applications. I have a special interest in privacy-preserving machine learning and hardware accelerators for IoT security. In the past, I worked on numerical calculations and simulations for physics-related problems (plasma physics, category theory, symmetry groups). My research is funded by EU.
