I’m a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems in Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken Germany. My research focuses on practical data anonymity. We have developed Diffix, a data anonymization mechanism that provides strong data anonymity, good analytic utility, and is easy to use.


Diffix is now being developed as the Open Diffix project. Prior to this, it was developed in the startup Aircloak, where I was a co-founder.
