I'm a researcher and PhD student at the Chair of Communication Networks at the University of Tübingen. From 2012 to 2015 I studied Cognitive Science (B.Sc.) at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen. Afterwards, I changed my focus and graduated in November 2017 with a Master's degree in Informatics.


My current research areas include:


  • Software-Defined Networks
  • Network Resilience
  • Multicast


  • Winter Term 2017/2018: Modellierung und Simulation I/II
