Research

My main research interest during my PhD studies lied in security and trust management in decentralised systems in the context of peer-to-peer and cloud environments. I focused on usable security and explore ways to enhance the security properties of connected services by harnessing the joint capabilities of different device classes.

I am/was involved in the following research projects:

  • mGov4EUMobile CrossBorder Government Services for Europe
    EU H2020SC6GOVERNANCE2020 (2021-2032)
  • SEMPER – Cross-border Semantic Interoperability of Powers and Mandates
