I investigate the area of cyber resilience.

The fundamental assumption behind cyber resilience is that at some point attackers will be successful. Thus, it is not enough to only focus on defense mechanisms. Strong recovery or fallback options and permanent adaption to new threats have to be in place as well.

With that in mind, I am particularly interested in

  • Resilient System Architectures: How to design systems and 'systems of systems' so that their resilience is ensured?
  • Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) research on cyber resilience
  • Empirical studies on cyber resilience: How much is this idea present and applied today? e.g. in companies, the public sector, infrastructure
  • AI and cyber resilience: How can AI as a tool be used to achieve resilience?

Curriculum Vitae

Before working at the Technical University of Munich, I completed my studies in computer science (M.Sc.) at the University of Leipzig and Waseda University in Tokyo. The focus of my master's degree was on cybersecurity and deep learning. In the field of cybersecurity, I attended courses on the basics of cybersecurity, security issues in Covid-19 warning apps, cryptographic protocols and data protection.
