Short Bio

I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of Technische Universität Darmstadt. I studied Wirtschaftsinformatik (Information Systems) at University of Mannheim from 2005 on and received my diploma in early 2011. After a short visit at IBM Research and Development in Böblingen, I joined the P2P Systems Engineering group in September 2011. Since then I have worked on numerous projects in the networking domain.

Research Interests

Overview of Research Areas

The focus of my research evolves around hybrid Content Delivery/Peer-to-Peer architectures, as these architectures combine the best of both worlds, a stable CDN backbone network and the low cost delivery of a Peer-to-Peer network. In this scope, I am focusing my research efforts on system architectures of CDN/P2P/ISP networks and hybrid integration, network economics, video streaming, and Quality of Experience measurement and modelling.


I am involved in a number of teaching activities:


Moreover, we offer seminars every semester.

Publications & Talks

You can find a list of my publications here. Invitations for talks are listed below.




Future Internet Dialogue @ IETF96

SoDA: Enabling ISP-CDN Cooperation with Software Defined Anycast





Disclaimer: Please understand, that there is no guarantee for an appointment, if you spot an empty slot in my calender. In any case, make an appointment via email *before* you come by my office! In general, I am not available on Fridays and during lunchtime (12 am - 1 pm).


I am using GnuPG to sign and encrypt my email traffic. You can find my public key on the SKS keyservers. Further information on GnuPG can be found here.
