My research interests include local and remote microarchitectural attacks as well as defenses. In addition, I am interested in reverse engineering and exploitation of operating systems or vulnerabilities.


I currently teach a master’s course about binary exploitation and secure coding:

  • Security Aspects in Software Development (lecture: winter term)

Looking for a bachelor’s thesis, master’s thesis, or projects in microarchitectural attacks and defenses? Let us know, we’re always happy to discuss open topics!
