Hi! I am Philipp. You might also know me as Daeinar. I do research on applied cryptography, security in decentralized and distributed systems, and privacy. I strive to turn research ideas into useful software tools.
At the moment, I work as a postdoctoral researcher in the Decentralized and Distributed Systems Lab at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. In 2018, I co-founded Sockpuppet Technologies, Inc., a company for cryptography consulting and trainings.
I am a member of the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts (IC3) and the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), and a scientific advisor to the DFINITY project.
I completed my PhD in cryptology in 2015 at the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of Passau, Germany. My PhD thesis received the 2016 dissertation award of the University of Passau in the areas of mathematics and computer science. For more details about myself, please refer to my curriculum vitae.
