I am currently working as a Privacy
Technologist at the European
Research Center of Huawei in Munich, Germany.
I hold a Ph.D. Degree in Computer Science
in Germany, and a M.Sc. Degree in Information Technology from Carnegie Mellon University
Some of my previous professional positions
My PhD research was focused on Security in Connected Smart Objects.
Since then I have broadened my research interests to include the
- Privacy Enhancing Technologies - Privacy by Design, Privacy
Engineering, Privacy Design Patterns
- Anonymization algorithms based on differential privacy for big
data - special focus on data mining algorithms (e.g. classification)
- Privacy in Internet of Things - Smart Environments,
Sensing, User-centric Architectures
- Usable Privacy - User acceptance of PETs
- Privacy-respecting Identity Management - Identity and Trust
in the Information Society
I have been involved in the following EU research projects:
