Researcher of Computer Science

RWTH Aachen University

Johannes is a researcher and Ph.D. student in computer science. He joined Klaus Wehrle’s Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University in November 2021. Before, he graduated with an M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University in 2021 and 2019, respectively. His research interests focus on privacy-preserving methods such as confidential computing, homomorphic encryption, and trusted execution environments.

Looking for a thesis?

I always seek motivated students doing a bachelor’s or master’s thesis at COMSYS. If you are interested in privacy-preserving methods or the security of distributed systems, we should get in touch! You can expect cutting-edge research topics, extensive supervision and regular feedback. I always invite motivated students to co-author follow-up paper projects.

Still unsure or trying to figure out a good idea? No problem! Email me two sentences on your motivation and general research interests. Also include a recent transcript of records or another reference and we might find a suitable thesis topic together.

I do not advise external theses.
