Distributed Security Infrastructures

Prof. Dr. Florian Tschorsch

Florian Tschorsch is assistant professor at TU Berlin and the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF), where he heads the Distributed Security Infrastructures group. Since October 2021, he joined HU Berlin as visiting professor heading the Chair of Computer Engineering. In his research, he strives for the integration of security and privacy aspects in distributed system architectures and networking protocols. He is particularly interested in the security-privacy-performance trade offs resulting from application-specific constraints. His application areas comprise, among others, anonymous Internet communication, data privacy, and blockchain technologies.

His work has been recognized on multiple occasions with best paper nominations at ICBC, LCN, and NetSys and research awards by GDD, U.S. NRL, and GI KuVS. He is fellow at the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and was recognized as Pioneer at the World Frontiers Forum (WFF).

Florian studied computer science with computer networks as major and cultural studies as minor subject at HHU Düsseldorf. During his master studies, he was awarded a scholarship by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to encourage and support young scientists. He worked as research associate at the universities of Düsseldorf, Würzburg, Bonn, and Berlin. In June 2016, he received his Ph.D. in computer science by HU Berlin.
