I ever since had a strong connection with France and in particular the Lorraine since I grew up in the State of Saarland, with its manifold connections and intertwinement within the Greater Region. I have always felt strongly connected to my home area, driven by the desire to contribute my share to make this area grow and prosper. This in particular includes, amongst others, longstanding joint research activities with Loria, such as in our joint collaborative research center on understanding and controlling online privacy.
