Brief Bio

I am working on a variety of projects related to Trusted Platform Modules. This includes applications of TPMs beyond PCs and use of TPMs in different scenarios. These range from embedded to cloud applications.

When I joined MSR in 2008 I started in a group called eXtreme Computing Group (XCG).  I have been working on a variety of systems projects from software for Intel's Single-Chip Cloud Computer or Intel's Knight's Ferry. Before that, I was part of the Operating Systems research group of Prof. Hermann Haertig at Technische Universitaet Dresden. I received my PhD from TU Dresden in 2011.

I am interested in operating systems research in a broad scope. Everything from embedded real-time systems to system software for clouds.
