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.

I hold a BSc in Business Information Systems from Cooperative State University Baden-Wurttemberg (Mannheim) and an MSc in Computer Science from The University of Edinburgh. For my MSc project, I worked with Prof. David Aspinall to investigate the security and privacy of eHealth devices, focusing on smart bathroom scales.

Between my degrees, I spent three years as an IT technology consultant with SAP Switzerland. My work focussed on security and data management of mobile solutions for enterprise processes. It was my pleasure to work with customers in Switzerland, Europe, and North America.

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.
