I am key researcher at SBA Research, a research center for Information Security in Vienna, Austria, and leading the Networks and Critical Infrastructures Security Research Group (ERIS) and a post-doctoral researcher at University of Vienna. I work on network security, in particular IPv6, the Internet’s transition towards IPv6 and measurement experiments. Among others, I have shown that the IPv6 Privacy Extension does not meet its goal of privacy protection. This led to the modification of a major client operating system eventually protecting millions of its users. Based on my interdisciplinary background, I also conduct research on security at the intersection of computer science and classical engineering. Recently, I worked on attacks against the power grid. In comparison to cyber-launched attacks, I aim to strike the grid at its electrical parts by increasing power demand at a high number of Internet-connected devices simultaneously.

Beyond research, I seriously care about knowledge transfer. I teach at multiple institutions, and have also been an interview partner for print and TV magazines. I am a strong supporter of equal opportunities (and in light of recent events particularly equal parenting). I am a cynophilist.
