Chris Warin, M.Sc.


I strive to work in areas that combine my passion for Computer Science and people, which led me to the topic of privacy. I started my journey in Computer Science with a 2 year undergraduate diploma at the IUT d'Annecy (France) between 2015-2017. I completed this degree by studying abroad at the University of Québec at Chicoutimi (Canada) in 2018, which granted me a double bachelor's degree in Computer Science. After a short experience in the work industry, I resumed my education with a master's degree in applied Computer Science at the University of Göttingen, that I completed in December 2021. Since February 2022, I am part of the CSP research group.
