Research

I'm a researcher and PhD student at the Chair of Communication Networks at the University of Tübingen. From 2012 to 2015 I studied Cognitive Science (B.Sc.) at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen. Afterwards, I changed my focus and graduated in November 2017 with a Master's degree in Informatics.

My current research areas include:

Teaching

Supervised Theses

Ongoing

  1. Master thesis: P4-Based Implementation of Loop-Free Alternates with Loop Detection and Termination for Resilient Software-Defined Networking
  2. Bachelor thesis: Design und Vergleich von Clustering-Algorithmen zur Verbesserung der Skalierbarkeit von BIER-basiertem Multicast in Kommunikationsnetzen

Concluded

  1. Bachelor thesis: Strategien zur preis- und kostenabhängigen Gestaltung von Lastplänen in einem virtuellen Kraftwerk mit Leistungsgrenzen
  2. Master thesis: Design and P4-Based Implementation of Scalable and Resilient BIER and BIER-TE for Large IP Multicast Networks
  3. Bachelor thesis: Topologiepartitionierung durch maschinellem Lernen für skalierbares IP-Multicast basierend auf Bit Index Explicit Replication
