About Me

I am a PhD Candidate at the CoreSec group at the Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communications at Graz University of Technology. I am the founder of pwmt.org, an open-source community creating functional and simplistic applications and libraries. I am interested in microarchitectural side-channel attacks and apiculture.

If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, feel free to contact me!
