About Me

I received the Diplom-Informatikerin (Bioinformatikin) from the Eberhard-Karls University of Tübingen (Germany) and the Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D.) degree from the Technical University of Munich (Germany).

From spring 2013 to May 2018 I was employed at the University of Zurich (Switzerland) as "Head of Mobile and Trusted Communications" at the Communication Systems Group (CSG) of Prof. Dr. B. Stiller. My focus was on topics in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) including issues such as constrained networks, security and privacy issues, as well as mobile communication (e.g., IEEE 802.15.4, LoRaWAN) and network management (see SecureWSN).

After several years of visiting status at the group of Prof. Dr. Gabi Dreo-Rodosek at the Universität der Bundeswehr München (University of Federal Armed Forces Munich) in Germany I joint the affiliated Research Institute CODE as researcher and lab manager. My research area got extended to the application area of military communication, smart environments, and critical infrastructures.

My work is documented in more than 30 publications, including several book chapters and journal articles, as well as the RFC 8272 on "TinyIPFIX for Smart Meters in Constrained Networks", and the ITU-T recommendation Y.3013 on "Socio-economic Assessment of Future Networks by Tussle Analysis". I contributed to several EU projects (e.g., CONCORDIA, symbIoTe, SmartenIT, FLAMINGO, AutHoNe) and different standardization organizations (IETF, ITU, ASUT) until now and continue with these activities and recruit research funds continuously. I am active in ACM and IEEE as TCP member, as well as reviewer for several journals and funding schemes, and organizer of conferences.
