About Me

I am a passionate programmer who specialized on IT security during his study programs. Currently I am enrolled in a Masters program from which I am going to graduate in March 2017. My master thesis with the topic of "Evaluation and Extension of Mobile Security Frameworks with a Focus on Runtime Injection" was performed at Continental ITS (Intelligent Transporting Systems) in Silicon Valley, California, USA.

I have profound knowledge in many different aspects ranging from IoT to sofware architectures, Linux environment, modern DBMSs and many security areas such as penetration testing, risk analysis and consulting. Regarding programming languages, I gained the most practical experience in C/C++, Java and Python within different scopes such as embedded or web development.
