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 and supervised by Prof. Ivan Flechais.

My DPhil (PhD) thesis Empowering communal privacy practices in smart homes focuses on improving User Experience through communal data protection by design in smart homes. Please see my recent publication for further details or get in touch.

Currently, I spend most of my time working on our project Informing the Future of Data Protection by Desing in Smart Homes funded by the UK Information Commissioner's Office. Please visit the project page for recent publication and updates.

About me

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.
