Emmy Noether
Research Group Leader

Ruhr-Universität Bochum


I am head of the Emmy Noether research group on “Computer-Aided Verification of Physical Security Properties (CAVE)” at the Chair for Security Engineering, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany.

Before, I worked as a Senior Hardware Security Engineer at the Rambus Cryptography Research Group located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I obtained my PhD (Dr.-Ing.) in 2018 on the topic of “Cryptographic Hardware Agility for Physical Protection” under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tim Güneysu at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany.

My current research focuses on Hardware Security and Secure Design. For this, I work on new concepts and approaches for Hardware Security Verification and Computer-Aided Security to enable efficient and automated protection of hardware implementations through sophisticated and specialized Security-Aware Electronic Design Automation tools.
