I'm a German/Swiss citizen who lives in Canada and works at the intersection of human rights and technology at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS), Concordia University. Professionally I focus on 1) how to use existing and emerging technologies to prevent or mitigate mass atrocity crimes and 2) on developing tools and procedures for activists and human rights groups to counter surveillance and suppression. My academic background is in political science, economics, and international affairs (B.A. University of St. Gallen) but I am involved with "internet stuff" since about 2002 when I bought my first PC at the age of 14. Since graduating from university I re intensely on the topics described above and try hard every day to learn more (especially the nitty gritty technical basics of CS, coding and encryption). Since I started at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) I helped my supervisors Kyle Matthews and Marie Lamensch to grow the newly instated Digital Mass Atrocity Prevention Lab (DMAP Lab) of which a brief overview (and on my work there) can be found in the link section. Oh, and I am a member of CCC since April 2015 o_O.
