Dr. Thorsten Strufe has been appointed Junior Professor for peer to peer networks at TU Darmstadt in April 2009.

Dr. Strufe worked with the Telematics and Computer Networks Group from 2001 to 2007 and he received his doctorate from Technische Universitat Ilmenau in 2007. His thesis deals with the construction of network-efficient overlay topologies for live multimedia streaming, and measures to make them especially resilient towards both the failure of nodes and denial of service attacks. It was awarded with the ''FFK Preis fuer die beste theoretisch orientierte Dissertation'' (FFK price for the best theory-oriented dissertation) in 2007.Subsequently, he took a post as senior researcher at EURECOM, where he was working on security in decentralized distributed systems (peer to peer, opportunistic networks). Here, he focused on evolving vulnerabilities, privacy, and new approaches to trust establishment, especially in the context of online social networks.
