About the author

I am a post doc researcher in the Advanced Network Architecture group at MIT and a research collaborator with Akamai Technologies. My current research centers around developing data-driven approaches to measure Internet reliability, resilience, and security. Prior to joining MIT, I earned my PhD (proof picture) from TU Berlin, advised by Anja Feldmann. In the summer of 2015, I was a research intern in the Custom Analytics Group at Akamai in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the summers of 2013 and 2014, I was a visiting researcher at ICSI in Berkeley, California. I am broadly interested in methods to mine and understand data at scale with an emphasis on measurements assessing structure, performance, and security of the Internet. In my PhD work I explored the phenomenon of IPv4 address space exhaustion and its consequences for the Internet and its stakeholders. My research was awarded with a Best Paper Award at ACM IMC 2016, an IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize 2017, and selected “Best of CCR” in 2015.
