Enthusiast/hacker/engineer currently studying computer science at KIT.

Interested in free software, modern programming languages, system programming, algorithms and information security.

Worked at securing Google and its products during a software engineering internship at the infosec team in Mountain View.

Worked on Checkpad MED by factisresearch GmbH, contributing a web frontend and various server-side improvements such as a highly concurrent data synchronization server written in Haskell.

Worked at 8com GmbH, experimenting with browser and PDF exploits. Developed a framework for reliable post-exploitation callbacks using HTTP and DNS tunneling. Implemented different attacks for demonstration purposes, such as man-in-the-middle attacks on online banking interfaces and scraping data from social networks for information gathering.

Actively participating on Codeforces, TopCoder, ACM ICPC. Acquired a notable deal of practical algorithm knowledge in the process. Tried myself at a few CTFs, but still somewhat of a beginner on that front.

Always up for a challenge.
