About me


I am currently a full time researcher at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the Quantum-Resistant Cryptography Group of Dr. Hannes Bartz. At the same time I pursue a PhD in code-based cryptography at the University of Zurich under the supervision of Professor Joachim Rosenthal.

Coding theory represents the intersection of all my research interests which include (but are not limited to) probability theory, number theory, combinatorics, algebra and cryptography.

News

Most recently, together with Hugo Sauerbier Couvée and Thomas Jerkovits we submitted a work on bounds on the spheres in the sum-rank metric.

In Collaboration with Hannes Bartz, Gianluigi Liva and Joachim Rosenthal, I just published a preprint on LDPC codes over integer residue rings endowed with the Lee metric. We analyzed their decoding performance over two channel models and derived bounds based on their average weight enumerator.
