Nicolas Küchler

I'm a first-year Ph.D. student in the Privacy Preserving Systems Lab at ETH Zurich, where I'm advised by Dr. Anwar Hithnawi and Prof. Timothy Roscoe. My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of computer systems and data privacy. I design and build systems that follow a user-centric privacy model to enable users to exercise more control over their data.

I completed my M.Sc degree in Computer Science at ETH Zurich with distinction. Before that, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Zurich with a B.Sc degree in Informatics.
