About Me

I am a Senior Researcher in the Networking and Security Group at the International Computer Science Institute, an independent non-profit research institute affiliated with the University of California, Berkeley. I am also a co-founder, and the CTO, of Broala, a startup offering professional Bro solutions to corporations and government. I am further an affiliate member of the Data Science and Technology Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and I work with the Lab's cyber security team. Before coming out to Berkeley, I was a research assistant at TU M√ľnchen, Germany. Before that, I received a diploma in Computer Science from University of Paderborn, Germany.

Research Interests

My research focuses on network security, with a particular emphasis on high-performance network monitoring in operational settings. More generally, I'm interested in understanding the capabilities and limitations of network technology as well as the characteristics of real-world Internet traffic.
