I'm a doctoral student with the Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in Cyber Security, hosted at the Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford. Supervised by Prof. Ivan Flechais, my research focusses on privacy and the Internet of Things. I aim to provide deeper understanding of the impact of technology on our privacy, especially in the home.

In 2016, I graduated with an MSc in Computer Science (distinction) from The University of Edinburgh. Under the supervision of Prof. David Aspinall, I investigated security and privacy of eHealth devices, focusing on smart bathroom scales. After graduating with an BSc in Business Information Systems from Duale Hochschule Badenwurttemberg (Mannheim), I spent three years as an IT technology consultant with SAP Switzerland. My work focussed on mobile solutions for enterprise processes. Serving customers in Switzerland, Europe and North America I further specialised in mobile solution security. I was also recognised as an expert in data synchronisation for offline applications.

My research

I approach the privacy context of smart homes from a socio-cultural perspective, considering the triangular relationship between socio-cultural aspects and technology, technology and privacy, and privacy and socio-cultural aspects. Please see my recent publication for further details or get in touch.
