Prof. Dr. Florian Tschorsch has accepted the call to the professorship for "Privacy and Security" at the Institute of System Architecture at the Technische Universität Dresden as of August 1, 2023. Since 2017, he held the professorship "Distributed Security Infrastructures" at the Einstein Center Digital Future and at the Technische Universität Berlin. In addition, he has held the Chair of Computer Engineering at the Humboldt University of Berlin as a visiting professor since October 2021.

Florian Tschorsch's research aims at integrating security and privacy in distributed system architectures and communication protocols, especially with regard to application-specific requirements. He has received several awards for his research, including nominations for the best paper at ICBC, LCN, and NetSys, awards from the Society for Data Protection and Data Security (GDD), the GI Communication and Distributed Systems (KuVS) group, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratories. He is also a Fellow at the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and was honored as a Pioneer at the World Frontiers Forum (WFF).

"I will remember the ECDF as a creative and inspiring place of interdisciplinary research with a strong network. Now I am looking forward to the next step in my career and to the teaching and research environment at TU Dresden. With the professorship, I would like to focus even more on the design of secure and privacy-protecting communication systems that enable self-determined use," says Florian Tschorsch.
