About me

I am a Professor of Computer Science at TU Braunschweig. Since 2016 I am leading the Institute of System Security. Prior to taking this position, I have been working at the University of Göttingen, Technische Universität Berlin and Fraunhofer Institute FIRST.

My research interests revolve around computer security and machine learning. My group is developing novel methods for detecting computer attacks, analyzing malicious software and discovering vulnerabilities in software. I am also interested in efficient algorithms for analyzing structured data, such as strings, trees and graphs.

My Erdős number is 3 (Müller → Jagota → Erdős) and my Bacon number is ∞. I am a distant academic relative of David Hilbert and Carl Friedrich Gauß. See here.
