I am a final year PhD student in the Security Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. I am the recipient of Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award, Lundgren Research Award and Churchill College research grant. My research is funded by Microsoft Research, EPSRC, Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge and Churchill College.

My supervisor is Professor Ross Anderson. My research interests include privacy enhancing technologies, anonymity, social network analysis and machine learning. I am also a member of the Churchill College.

Before starting my PhD I completed my M.Sc. from the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. My course work was focused on security and cryptography, my thesis was also in this area. During my M.Sc. I had the opportunity to spend time at the Department of Computer Security, Bonn, where I learned a lot about security and cryptography.
