  • Security Researcher, Barkhausen Institut
I am a Security Researcher at Barkhausen Institut. Before that, I was a Research Scientist at NEC Labs Europe (2017–2020). I spent a year (2016–2017) as a Postdoc at Royal Holloway, University of London under the supervision of Professor Lorenzo Cavallaro.
I completed my PhD in 2016 with the Security Group at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory. I was supervised by Professor Ross Anderson and funded by Microsoft Research as a recipient of the Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award.
Research. I do research in the intersection of security, privacy, and machine learning—specifically, adversarial machine learning and data privacy. I have a keen interest in the application of machine learning techniques to study security and privacy problems.
