about

I am a Usable Security and Privacy researcher at the L3S research center, Leibniz University Hannover, where I'm pursuing my PhD in Computer Science. My research focus lies in establishing practices for ecologically valid usable security and privacy research as well as supporting developers in making secure programming choices.


If you are interested in my work or wish to collaborate with me, please do not hesitate to contact me.
