I obtained my Doctor of Engineering (Dr.-Ing., Ph.D. equivalent) from Technical University of Berlin in 2017 with a thesis on the user experience with security and privacy mechanisms on smartphones. From 2013 to 2017, I was employed at Technical University of Berlin as a researcher at the Quality and Usability Lab which was also part of Telekom Innovation Labs. During this time, I was also a fellow of Software Campus, a professional development program for future IT executives (2015-2017). From 2010 to 2012, I had the pleasure to gain a lot of interesting impressions while living and working abroad as a researcher at the Mihajlo Pupin Institute in Belgrade, Serbia, in the field of IT-supported emergency management. I received my Diploma degree (Dipl.-Ing., M.Sc. equivalent) in Electrical engineering and Information Technology with a major in Communications engineering from Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2009.
