For all information on my courses, thesis supervision, etc., take a look at the Real-World Cryptography Research Group page.

I’m the head of the Real-World Cryptography Research Group and my research covers all practically relevant means of secure communication and storage, especially cryptographic messaging protocols.

If you are interested in working with me, get in touch via email. Ideally, you mention an area of interest: E.g., a particular secure communication application, a cryptographic protocol, a problem or question about secure communication you consider relevant, or simply a research paper you found interesting. Bachelor and master students don’t have to have a clear thesis topic in mind – we will find an interesting, individual problem together.
