Sönke Huster, M.Sc.


I obtained my B.Sc. in computer science at TU Dresden in 2018. Because of my interest in privacy and security topics, I moved to TU Darmstadt, where I received my M.Sc. in computer science in 2022. Afterward, I worked as a security researcher at the Secure Mobile Networking Lab (SEEMOO) at TU Darmstadt and uncovered several severe vulnerabilities in the Linux Bluetooth and Wi-Fi stack, partially affecting Android devices.

I am part of the CSP research group since March 2023.
