Dr. Christoph Paasch

Christoph Paasch's picture

I'm an Engineer in Computer Science, specialized in Networking and Security. I graduated at the "Université catholique de Louvain" in 2009.
I worked during one year as a Software Design Engineer at Alcatel-Lucent in the IP Division.
I moved on starting my PhD at the UCLouvain under the supervision Prof. Olivier Bonaventure in the IP Networking Lab. During my PhD I worked on improving Multipath TCP and its Linux Kernel implementation.
When finishing my PhD in 2014 I started working for Apple as Siri Systems Developer.
