I'm a security researcher and last year PhD student in Thorsten Holz' group at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. Before switching to CISPA in early 2023, I was located at Ruhr University Bochum.
My research interests focus on automating the pipeline of finding bugs in programs, understanding them, and exploiting them. Currently, I spend most of my time on improving fuzzing, such that we can find more bugs in less time.
Beyond working with bugs, I have a strong interest in (de-)obfuscation, especially focusing on automated deobfuscation attacks and how to break them. Recently, I've spoken at REcon'22 Montreal on "The Next Generation of Virtualization-based Obfuscators" together with Tim Blazytko.
Besides my research, I have helped shaping and teaching courses on Systems Security and Operating Systems Security at Ruhr University Bochum, where I also obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Security from.
