Malte Möser mail@maltemoeser.de (PGP)

I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University and a Graduate Student Fellow at the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP). My adviser is Arvind Narayanan.
I am broadly interested in the security and anonymity of cryptographic currencies.

Previously, I was a research assistant in the Information Security Research Group of Rainer Böhme and completed my bachelor and master studies in Information Systems at the University of Münster in Germany. During that time, I received fellowships from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation and the German Academic Exchange Service.

You can find me on Twitter, GitHub and VSCO.
