Raphael Spreitzer

Researcher (Security & Privacy)

IAIK, Graz University of Technology


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Secure Systems group at IAIK, Graz University of Technology. My main research interests are information security with a special focus on side-channel attacks on mobile devices, e.g., cache attacks and sensor-based attacks, and practical applications of privacy-enhancing technologies. I obtained a PhD degree (Dr. techn.) in computer science with distinction from Graz University of Technology in 2017. Before, I finished the master's programme Software Engineering and Management with distinction at Graz University of Technology.
