Prof. Dr. Bernhard Tellenbach
Head of Research/Focus Area, Head of Research Area, Information Security
Position at the ZHAW
I'm a senior lecturer for computer science at ZHAW (since 2010), focusing on information security. I'm heading the information security research area and my main activities are in research and development and in teaching (Bachelor and Master level).
In 2005, I graduated from ETH Zurich as M.Sc. in electrical engineering and information technology, specializing in the areas computer engineering, communication systems and information security. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant at ETH Zurich. In 2012, I completed my dissertation on detection, classification and visualization of anomalies (in network traffic) using generalized entropy metrics. In parallel to this position, I had a teaching assignment at the university of applied sciences in the domain of operating systems and parallel and network programming.
Occasionally, I'm also doing some work as an IT security consultant as a contractor.
