I am a tenure-track faculty at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. Before that I was a visiting assistant professor at Stanford University and research group leader at CISPA as part of the CISPA-Stanford Center for Cybersecurity. I got my PhD at Eurecom in Sophia-Antipolis (France) under the supervision of Davide Balzarotti. Until August 2013, I was a researcher associate in the Security and Trust group at the SAP research labs.


I research on multiple aspects of the security of modern application software, in particular on web-based application. While my core research goal is to advance the state of the art of automated vulnerability detection and analysis, I also study the security properties of emerging technologies/trends in application software.
