My research interests are towards the goal of improving automation in IT-Security. A particular focus is on machine learning; as it provides new tools to improve existing methods and enables new approaches to old problems. But, due to the complexity of the problems in IT-Security automation alone will be difficult - to bridge the gap interplay between tooling and human experts is another topic of interest.


If you're in­te­rested in applying Ma­chi­ne Le­arning to problems in IT-Security and look­ing for a Se­mi­nar, Ba­che­lor’s or Mas­ter’s The­sis, just drop me an mail or stop by at my of­fice.
