I am a physicist working for Siemens Building Technologies.
Until 2008, I have been a research assistant at FHNW and EPFL, where I defended my thesis and obtained the Dr. sc. EPFL. My research focus was cryptanalysis of stream ciphers. See dblp and scholar for a list of publications.
Prior to that, I studied physics at the University of Bern. I wrote my master’s thesis in field of computational physics and obtained the M. Sc. in 2003.
