I am part of the Cognitive Computing & Industry Solutions department of the IBM Zurich Research Lab. Since 2002, I am active in research in areas of big data, computer security and intrusion detection, services and systems management. Current interests include social media analytics using big data graph tools, privacy and de-sensitisation, as well as computer security and risk assessment in socio-technical systems. I joined IBM Research in 1993, first as part of the IT group of the lab, later serving as the manager of the IT department until 2002. I received a diploma in physics (1988) at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and a Ph.D in physics (1993) at the University of Zürich, Switzerland.
