I am a Professor of Computer Science at Technische Universität Berlin, where I head the Chair of Machine Learning and Security within the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD). Previously, I have been working at Technische Universität Braunschweig, University of Göttingen, and Fraunhofer Institute FIRST.
My research interests revolve around computer security and machine learning. My group is developing novel methods for detecting computer attacks, analyzing malicious software and discovering security vulnerabilities. Moreover, we explore the security and privacy of learning algorithms. I am also interested in efficient algorithms for analyzing structured data, such as strings, trees, and graphs.
My Erdős number is 3 (Müller → Jagota → Erdős) and my Bacon number is ∞. I am a very distant academic relative of Carl Friedrich Gauß (see here), although this doesn't help when solving math problems.

For fun, I am tracking my reviewing and email activity. Here are two plots showing my reviewing activity over the last years. As you can see, I am writing a lot of reviews per year. Most of the time, this is fun.
Similarly, here are two plots showing the number of incoming and outgoing emails on my university account over the last two weeks. The average and standard deviation are calculated over several years (see week number in legend).
I am maintaining a list of top-cited security papers. The list is automatically created based on citations of papers published at the four tier-1 security conferences.
