Research

My main research interests are identity management (IdM), cloud computing and Blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT). In my PhD, I am focusing on self-sovereign identity (SSI), decentralized public key infrastructure (DPKI), DLT, consensus mechanisms and applied cryptography in these fields. I was involved in several national and international projects including Credential (Secure Cloud Identity Wallet), a Horizon 2020 project focusing on secure data-sharing in the cloud.

Teaching

I am holding two lectures in winter term’s course AK IT Security I, namely Electronic Signatures, and Blockchain and its Use Cases in eGovernment.

Service

I am a core group member and representative of Austria in the European Self-Sovereign Identity Framework (ESSIF), which is a part of the European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI).
