About Me

I am a research assistant and member of the software engineering group at the Universität Bremen in Germany. I graduated in December 2007 and my diploma thesis deals with clone detection for embedded software. Having worked for a commercial partner for two years, I returned to improve my working-skills.

Research Interests

After my diploma thesis I refocused to the topic of Software Security, an emerging and very interesting topic. My goal is to extract security relevant parts from source code, to create a security model which supports the process of software-security comprehesion.

Personal Interests

Currently I'm developing a small open-source utility software. The tool writes annotations, made with an Amazon Kindle for a PDF file, back to the file. This is neccessary since the annotations are stored in a separate undocumented binary file. The project is called kindle annotations and can be found at the Google Code. At the moment kindle annotations is a command line tool but the next step is a graphical user interface to make it available to more users.
