From late 2003 to 2008 I studied computer science at the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf. In my studies, I focused on computer networks in general and mobile/vehicular ad hoc networks and peer-to-peer networks in particular. From mid 2004 to late 2007 I also worked as a research assistant at the department of computer networks and communication systems. In May 2008 I received a M.Sc. degree in computer science.
From April to November 2008 I joined Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, Inc. at Palo Alto, CA for an internship and worked with the team for vehicle-centric communications (VCC).
I was working as a researcher at the Heinrich Heine University from December 2008 to February 2013, and received the doctorate degree in January 2013.
In April 2013, I joined escrypt at their Berlin site.
